McCarver and Pujols's "great baserunning"
Seventh inning of game 5 (I think. Maybe game 4).
Two outs, Cards with runners at first (Pujols) and second, tie game.
Sharp single to left. Runner from second comes around to score.
Pujuls intentionally rounds second and heads for third to try and get the throw cut off.
Throw from outfield is cut-off and Pujols is easily rundown for the third out.
Run counts and Cards take a one-run lead.
"That was a great piece of baserunning by Pujols"
Does anyone think not?
It looked to me like the run would have scored easily, and the Cards could have had first and second with 2 outs all over again.
Huh? Huh-uh. Oh yeah, uh-huh.
