St. Louis Cardinals Notes, Quotes 2008-09-26
--1B Albert Pujols raised his average to .353, but that still is 12 points shy of Atlanta's Chipper Jones, whom Pujols is unlikely to catch by Sunday because an injured Jones probably won't play much this weekend at Houston. "Whatever he ends up with, he's had a monstrous season," manager Tony La Russa said of Pujols.

--3B Troy Glaus walked four times, tying his single-game best set with Anaheim in 2001.

--The back-to-back homers by 1B Albert Pujols and OF Ryan Ludwick in the seventh inning marked the sixth time the Cardinals had performed that feat this season, the last time coming Sept. 2 in Arizona from C Yadier Molina and INF Felipe Lopez. The victim in both cases was RHP Yusmeiro Petit.

--SS Cesar Izturis boosted his average to .264 with a 3-for-3 day. In his eight-game hitting streak, Izturis has gone 13-for-23.

--The Cardinals won three games in a row for only the second time since mid-August.

BY THE NUMBERS: 40 -- Times the Cardinals scored two or fewer runs in their first 153 games.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "We have to define exactly where the young guys are in their development and what kind of part they'll play next year." -- Pitching coach Dave Duncan, on the offseason meetings to discuss the futures of young relievers Chris Perez, Jason Motte and Kyle McClellan.
