Pujols' single was a line drive off Bailey's left ankle that bailey then picked up and threw down the right field line, allowing Schumaker and Ryan to score.

Bailey left the game for x-rays of the ankle, which were negative.

Pujols would add a solo homer in the third, his 38th home run of the season.

Carpenter allowed two runs on eight hits and struck out ten in seven innings of work to improve to 12 and 3.
