Pujols Homers in Return to St. Louis; Cards beat Angels 4-2

The former Cardinals star thrilled the Busch Stadium faithful for perhaps one final time, launching a seventh-inning home run to get the Los Angeles Angels on the board.

Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina cleared the stage at home plate and fans gave Pujols an extended standing ovation before his first at-bat.

"He probably deserved about five minutes more of that (first) ovation", Wacha said.

Rafa Benitez is to leave Newcastle United
The world-famous coach has used all his skill and ingenuity to keep Newcastle in the top flight, on a tight budget. Newcastle United are to begin the search for a new manager after confirming Rafael Benitez will leave the club .

Friday's contest marked Pujols' first game in St. Louis since Game 7 of the 2011 World Series, in which the Cardinals beat the Texas Rangers.

It was pretty obvious the St. Louis Cardinals and their fans were going to throw a hell of a party for Albert Pujols before the weekend even began. "We had that little moment to ourselves right there". Pujols has been the beneficiary of several long standing ovations in the Angels vs Cardinals games on Friday, June 21 and Saturday, June 22.

"It's just unbelievable. Started my career here, 11 years, the success that I had here, nine playoffs, two World Series, the best fans in baseball", Pujols said.
