Albert’s Derby Drama

Pujols started off slow, with 4 homers in the first round, but had a big second round to secure a tie for 3rd place in the home run derby.  He belted 9 homers in the 2nd round to bring his total to 13.  It was cute to watch Albert Jr. watching his dad.  As Albert had 8 outs and needed 3 more homers to tie Vlad Guerrero and acheive a swing-off for the finals, Albert asked his son, "Do you think I can hit 3 more?" Junior didn’t hesitate to nod affirmatively.  It all came down to the last swing, with 9 homers and 9 outs, but Albert’s final blast ended just at the warning track.  Still, a great show by Albert, and let’s hope he keeps hitting like that in the 2nd half of the season.
