Pujols fell behind 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. The official scorer confirmed Pujols walked on the third ball of the at-bat.

FISH OF ALL TRADES
Scott Olsen had a sacrifice bunt, scored a run and recorded his third win in Florida's 9-6 victory over the Mets on Monday night. Olsen is now 6-for-11 (.545) on the season. The left-hander allowed four runs - two earned - in six-plus innings to get his third win of the year.

BEST FOOT FORWARD
San Francisco beat Colorado 9-5 Monday night for its seventh straight home victory - the club's longest unbeaten run in its waterfront ballpark since also winning seven in a row from June 19-July 2, 2004. ... John Lackey retired Kansas City's Ross Gload on an unusual play in the fourth inning of the Angels' 3-1 win. Gload hit a liner up the middle that would have gone through for a single, but it glanced off the pitcher's left foot and bounced straight to first baseman Robb Quinlan, who picked up the ball and made the tag.

STREAKS
Albert Pujols extended his hitting streak to nine games in St. Louis' 7-1 loss to Milwaukee on Monday night. ... Tim Hudson, who got a no-decision in Atlanta's 5-2 win over Philadelphia, has lasted at least seven innings in each of his first six starts.

SNAPPED
Pittsburgh snapped a two-game slide with a 3-2 win over Chicago, ending the Cubs' three-game winning streak.

SPEAKING
``It's definitely the most mentally draining game I've ever pitched. But I know Josh and my grandmother would not have wanted me to be anywhere else but out there on the mound.'' - Braves right-hander Tim Hudson, on pitching the day after getting word that his college teammate Josh Hancock and his grandmother passed away. Hudson allowed two runs and four hits over eight innings in a 5-2 victory over Philadelphia.
