St. Louis Cardinals Notes, Quotes 2009-05-11
--RHP Ryan Franklin suffered his first blown save of the season in his 10th save opportunity Sunday when he surrendered solo homers to SS Jerry Hairston Jr., and pinch-hitter Micah Owings in the ninth inning. Franklin hadn't been scored on in his first 13 outings. "I made two mistakes. In this ball park, you can't make too many mistakes," said Franklin.

--1B Albert Pujols, NL Player of the Month for April, had been nothing-for-11 before he homered in the fifth inning. Pujols had gone hitless in three straight games after a four-for-four game.

BY THE NUMBERS: 4 -- Number of Cardinals rookies who have hit their first major-league homers -- OF Colby Rasmus and INFs Joe Thurston, Brian Barden and Tyler Greene.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "I'm lucky to be walking today." -- CF Rick Ankiel, after losing his balance and taking on the left-center-field wall at Busch Stadium.
