Cardinals Crush Phillies in Season Opener

by @ 6:04 pm. Filed under 1926 Cardinals

Albert Pujols is the man.  Two for two with two walks, two homeruns, four RBIs and three runs.  What a way to kick off the season as the Cardinals destroyed the Phillies 13-5 in the season opener.  Scott Rolen hit a grand slam and the Cardinals broke the game open in the fourth inning with eight runs.

Chris Carpenter was a little shaky but he got the win.  He gave up four runs on nine hits and a walk with two strikeouts.  Ryan Howard and Patt Burrell both too Carpenter deep but by the time that happened, the Cardinals were way out in front.

Mark Mulder gets the start on Wednesday.  He’ll be throwing against Bret Myers.
