Pujols homers Cards past Astros
The Road Warrior Redbirds won for the fourth time in four away games this year, but to say they had to work for it is putting things very mildly. Their 5-3 victory over Houston required a little bit of everything, from a fine start by Jeff Suppan, home runs by Albert Pujols and Reggie Sanders and five outs out of Jason Isringhausen.

The Astros managed one run against Jeff Suppan, who yielded an RBI single to Lance Berkman in the first inning during a five-hit, six-inning outing. Houston right-hander Wade Miller retired his first six batters before yielding a solo homer to Reggie Sanders in the third and an Albert Pujols two-run shot in the sixth.
