ST. LOUIS (AP) -Albert Pujols of the St. Louis Cardinals was 0-for-3 before being removed in a double-switch on Thursday night, ending his streak of homering in five consecutive games.
Pujols has been hampered by a hamstring injury that left him hobbling around the bases on Wednesday, when he hit his 30th homer in the first inning. He had homered in six of the previous seven games, but never came close to a long ball against Rick VandenHurk and Lee Gardner of the Florida Marlins.
Pujols popped out in the first, lined out in the third and grounded out in the sixth before being taken out of the game.
The homer streak matched the franchise record last done by Jim Edmonds from July 6-11, 2004. Pujols' RBI streak also ended at seven games, during which he drove in eight runs.
