Pujols reaches 100 RBIs again

Associated Press

Albert Pujols hit a three-run double to reach 100 runs batted in for the ninth consecutive season and Adam Wainwright limited Pittsburgh to one run over 6 2/3 innings for his sixth consecutive road victory, leading the Cardinals past the Pirates, 5-3, on Saturday night.

Pujols is the only National League player to begin his career with nine seasons of 100 or more RBIs. The only major leaguer with a longer streak is Hall of Famer Al Simmons, who had 11 consecutive seasons with the Philadelphia Athletics from 1924-34.

Pujols is batting .429 against Pittsburgh this season with three homers and 11 RBIs in 11 games. He is a career .380 hitter at PNC Park, where he has 64 RBIs in 67 games.
