(ST. LOUIS, MO) - Adam Wainwright pitched eight shutout innings and Albert Pujols went deep again as the St. Louis Cardinals blanked the Houston Astros 5-0 in the home opener at Busch Stadium.

Pujols leads the majors with 14 runs batted in and is tied for the major league lead with five home runs.
