Albert Pujols' pinch-hit two-run home run lifts St. Louis

Pujols drilled the two-run

pinch-hit shot off reliever Brandon Hughes (2-2)

A probable future Hall of Famer,

 Pujols trails only Barry Bonds (762)

Hank Aaron (755), Babe Ruth (714) and Alex Rodriguez (696) 

on the all-time home run list.

The 42-year-old jumped on an 0-1 offering.
