Under pressure • Cardinals’ slugger Albert Pujols is facing increased scrutiny. The Cardinals had a chance to come back from Jaime Garcia’s implosion Sunday afternoon, but Pujols hit into a 5-4-3 double play to kill a potential rally in the seventh. If it was Nick Punto or Allen Craig, it’d be one of those things. But this is Pujols. When he comes up empty, it draws attention for obvious reasons: He’s been the best hitter of his generation. And he’s becoming a free agent after the season. The Brewers won Game 1 of the NLCS, 9-6, but the Cards, and Pujols, are hardly finished. Game 2 starts tonight at 7:05.
