Pujols joined Reggie Jackson and Babe Ruth as the only players to bash three long balls in a World Series game, launching a three-run homer in the sixth, a two-run bomb in the seventh and a solo shot in the ninth as St. Louis took a 2-1 lead in the Fall Classic.
St. Louis starter Kyle Lohse lasted only three innings and Lance Lynn (1-0) picked up the victory after yielding one run on three hits over 2 1/3 relief innings.
Matt Harrison (0-1) was roughed up for five runs (three earned) on six hits over 3 2/3 innings for Texas.
