Albert Pujols hit two homers -- including a two-run shot in the 10th -- as the St. Louis Cardinals edged the Houston Astros, 8-6, in the finale of a three-game series at Minute Maid Park. So Taguchi also homered in the 10th, and David Eckstein went deep and scored twice for the Cardinals, who have won four of their last five. Braden Looper got the start and allowed three runs on seven hits over six innings. Jason Isringhausen (2-0) walked away with the win after tossing two innings of one- run ball. St. Louis blew a 4-0 lead and was pushed into extra innings, but erupted for three runs in the 10th to salvage the win. Iguchi started the surge with a shot to left that rang off the pole for his second homer of the year. Eckstein followed with a base hit before Pujols stepped in a batter later and belted a two-run home run to left-center. The Cards will have the day off.

To help with the catching situation with the injury to Yadier Molina, the Cardinals acquired veteran catcher Kelly Stinnett from the Los Angeles Dodgers for cash considerations on Sunday. Stinnett was playing for the Dodgers Triple-A affiliate in Las Vegas before being shipped to the Cardinals.

In his first appearance of the season, J.P. Howell pitched eight strong innings, to lead Tampa Bay past Kansas City, 5-1, in the third contest of a four-game set at Tropicana Field. Howell (1-0), who was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Friday, allowed just one run on five hits and struck out a career-best seven while not issuing a walk. Kansas City starter Scott Elarton (1-2) went 5 2/3 innings, allowing four runs on six hits. Jason LaRue homered for the only run of the game for the Royals, who had just five hits and were looking to win their third straight contest. These two teams will play today.
