St. Louis Cardinals Notes, Quotes 2009-05-01
--Cardinals starters finished April at 13-2. The relievers ended up 3-5 with five blown saves. But the bullpen has pitched much better after a rocky first couple of weeks.

--1B Albert Pujols finished April with eight homers and 28 RBIs after clubbing a two-run homer in the first inning off Washington RHP Daniel Cabrera. Pujols had been 6-for-31 (.194) on the road before having two hits in each of his last two games.

--Of the Cardinals' 20 hits in the Atlanta series, 19 of them were singles. SS Brendan Ryan's double in the third inning was the only extra-base hit for the club in three games in Atlanta.

--The series victory over the Braves was the Cardinals' third in succession. In seven series this year, they have won five, split one and lost one.

BY THE NUMBERS: 8 -- Grand slams for 1B Albert Pujols, who has just started his ninth season.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "I think you understand you're in the presence of a once-in-a-lifetime hitter." -- SS Khalil Greene on 1B Albert Pujols.
