MIAMI (AP) — Albert Pujols had two hits and scored twice as the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Miami Marlins 5-1 on Tuesday night.

The 42-year-old Pujols stretched a bloop hit near right the-field foul line into a double in the second inning and came home on Paul DeJong’s double. DeJong then scored from second on Miami second baseman Jazz Chisholm Jr.’s throwing error.

Tyler O’Neill had an RBI single in the third before Pujols singled and raced home from first on Edman’s triple to right-center.

Edman added a run-scoring single in the fifth.

Wainwright and catcher Yadier Molina made their 307th start together, surpassing the Chicago White Sox battery of Red Faber and Ray Schalk for third most all-time.

Bryan De Cruz homered for Miami in the sixth. Wainwright was lifted after allowing Brian Anderson’s two-out single.

Relievers T.J. McFarland and Ryan Helsley got the next seven outs around three hits and Giovanny Gallegos worked a perfect ninth.
