Pujols sits as Cards finish season with 5-3 loss to Pirates

PITTSBURGH (AP) The chants for Albert Pujols began in earnest in the eighth inning, with most of the red-clad fans inside PNC Park yearning for one last regular season at bat for the St. Louis Cardinals slugger.

Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol heard them. And ignored them.

"I think (Pujols) delivered what he needed to deliver over the last 162 (games)," Marmol said with a laugh about the future Hall of Fame slugger, who became one of four players in Major League history to reach 700 home runs behind a memorable second-half surge.
