The World Series is won when one team wins the best of seven games. Right now, heading into World Series Game Four, the Texas Rangers, who return to the MLB Championship Series just one year after losing to the San Francisco Giants, find themselves behind a game to Albert Pujols and the St. Louis Cardinals.
And the reason for this is a record-setting performance by Albert Pujols, who, with Cardinals hitting coach and MLB Home Run Star Mark McGuire cheering him on, hit three home runs in World Series Game Three – a mark reached by only Babe Ruth and Reggie Jackson.
Pujols said to the New York Times: “I didn’t walk into the ballpark today thinking that I was going to have a night like this. I walked to the ballpark with the attitude that I have every day — to help this ballclub to win.”
Now, the Texas Rangers put Derek Holland, who’s never faced the Cardinals or Pujols before, into the lion’s den in World Series Game Four.
