 MILWAUKEE (AP) -Cardinals' slugger Albert Pujols got a premature walk in the sixth inning of St. Louis' game against the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday night.
Pujols fell behind Brewers' starter and former teammate Jeff Suppan 0-2 before fouling off a pitch, taking two balls and fouling off another. He was awarded first base by home plate umpire Dan Iassogna after the next pitch.
Official scorer Tim O'Driscoll confirmed Pujols, who extended his hitting streak to nine with a single in the first, walked on the third ball of the at-bat.
It was St. Louis' first game since reliever Josh Hancock, 29, was killed shortly after midnight Sunday when his SUV struck the rear of a flatbed tow truck on a St. Louis highway.
The Cardinals' scheduled home game against Chicago on Sunday night was postponed.
