Albert Pujols

A bit of advice, if you’re gonna try to steal home, keep running! In the top of the 12th against the Giants Albert got a great break off 3rd as he headed toward the plate, Bengie Molina called for the ball, and the startled pitcher Jonathan Sanchez threw it home. Molina dropped the throw, but for some unknown reason Pujols stopped running, he’d have been safe if he’d continued to run. But just like Forrest Gump, he stopped running, and we don’t know why. The Cardinal slugger was tagged out easily to end the top of the 12th, of course San Francisco scored the winning run in the bottom of the frame.
