The Pittsburgh-St. Louis series will also the final regular-season games in the career of Cardinals great Albert Pujols, who hit his 703rd career home run in the Monday night game. Pujols also passed Babe Ruth for the second-most RBI’s in Major League Baseball history with the round-tripper. He has also hit 34 home runs at PNC Park in his career, most outside of home stadiums in St. Louis and Los Angeles where he had regularly played home games. Pujols has played in 100 games at PNC Park.
Pujols, catcher Yadier Molina and pitcher Adam Wainwright will be retiring following this season, although the Cardinals have qualified for the post-season.
