Pujols hit a two-out solo shot off Reds starter Aaron Harang in the top of the first and added a two-run shot off Mike Lincoln in the seventh.

Colby Rasmus hit a solo homer off Harang in the fourth and Yadier Molina capped the scoring for the Redbirds with a grand slam off Nick Masset in the eighth.
