Pujols pulled — UPDATED
Albert Pujols has been removed from tonight’s game due to what the Cardinals are calling “mild tightness in his left hamstring.”
With two outs in the seventh inning of the Cardinals’ game against the Reds, Pujols hit a groundball to the left side. He pulled up on his way down the baseline and was thrown out despite a late and offline throw from Miguel Cairo.
After Pujols descended into the dugout, the Cardinals training staff looked him over, he was removed from the game. Lance Berkman moved to first base, with Jon Jay entering the game in right field for Berkman.
I’ll of course update this after we get down to the clubhouse and get more information.
