Pujols hits 400th

Albert Pujols hit his 400th career home run Thursday night in Washington, but the Cardinals were edged, 11-10 in 13 innings.

The Cardinals continue to play down to the the level of teams without much standing in their respective divisions, permitting Cincinnati to take a stab at running off the the NL Central.

Not helping the Cardinals cause, both Matt Holliday and Albert Pujols suffered injuries in the ball game. It is unknown at this time whether the injuries will force either player to the bench.

The Cardinals play Washington again Friday night.
