Albert Pujols hit three home runs and drove in six runs to help St. Louis defeat Texas, 16-7, in Game Three of the World Series. Babe Ruth, in 1926 and 1928, and Reggie Jackson in 1977, are the only other players in World Series history to have three homers in a game. Yadier Molina provided four RBI for the Cardinals, who took a two-games-to-one lead in the best-of-seven series. Allen Craig lifted a solo shot in the win. Lance Lynn was credited with the win after tossing two-and-a-third innings of one-run ball in relief. Nelson Cruz blasted a two-run home run, while Michael Young chipped in with a solo homer for the Rangers. Starter Matt Harrison suffered the loss, allowing five runs, three earned, in three-and-tow-thirds frames. Game Four is scheduled for 8:05 p.m. Eastern tonight in Arlington.
