ARLINGTON: Albert Pujols hit three home runs and drove in six to power the St Louis Cardinals to a 16-7 win over the Texas Rangers and a two games-to-one lead in the World Series.

Pujols's home runs in the sixth, seventh and ninth innings tied the records set by New York Yankee Babe Ruth in the fourth games of the 1926 and 1928 series and Yankee Reggie Jackson in game six of the 1977 series.

Allen Craig hit a solo home run in the first inning to give St Louis a 1-0 lead. The Cardinals then scored four runs in the fourth to make it 5-0 before the teams traded three runs apiece in the fifth.
Pujols scored on David Freese's ground out followed by Yadier Molina's cheap football jerseys two-run double in the fifth. The Rangers narrowed the gap to two runs, 8-6, on Michael Young's one-run double, Adrian Beltre's run-scoring single and Mike Napoli's sacrifice fly that sent Young home.
