This is what happens when you have 13 pitchers on your staff
by Bob Timmermann
The St. Louis Cardinals came in to today's game at Milwaukee carrying 13 pitchers. And when shortstop Cesar Izturis left with an arm injury after getting hit by a pitch from Eric Gagne in the ninth, Albert Pujols was pressed into duty at second base.
The photo from here shows Pujols trying to make a play on Gabe Gross stealing second in the 12th inning. Gross was safe and he went on to score the winning run as the Brewers prevailed 9-8.
The key to the Brewers win: carrying 14 pitchers on staff.
