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.



Did you notice on the replay that Votto did not actually touch first base on the play? That is the way it looked to me, but then they cut away on the broadcast.

I was at the game… Votto was not even close to 1st base. Albert was safe.

Pujols needed out of the game, anyway. And we got the win. Those calls at first base can be a bit sketchy from time to time… could have been a far worse circumstance to get that call.

You mean like a World Series?
