He had a career-high 15 game hit-streak from 5/1-24. (The longest by a Cardinal catcher since Erik Pappas, 16-game streak in 1993 (5/14-6/5))
Albert Pujols has 7 straight 100-RBI and 7 straight 30 HR seasons.
Chris Duncan and Albert Pujols are the only Cardinals to begin their careers with consecutive 20-HR season.
On Sept. 18th, the Cardinals become the first NL team to use 11 pitchers in a game. The Cards still lost to the Phillies, 7-4 in 14 innings.
David Eckstein batted .405 in September, ranking 5th in the NL and ranked 2nd (4th in MLB) among all NL shortstops batting average (.310) since the All-Star break.
Jason Isringhausen recorded his 30th save on 9/22 vs. Houston, giving him five 30-save seasons (first ever) with the Cardinals!
Jason Isringhausen earned his 200th save as a Cardinal on 8/26 vs Atlanta. He's only the 15th reliever in ML history to have recorded 200 or more saves with one team!
Tony La Russa moved into 3rd place on the all-time games managed list (4,409 games, 8/21)
The Cardinals pitching staff has put together 10 straight quality starts (8/7-8/17) (7/3 w/l). This is the longest streak of quality starts since 4/23-5/4, 2003. (The staff at that time was: Matt Morris, Woody Williams, Brett Tomko, Jason Simontacchi, and Garrett Stephenson.)
The Cardinals equaled a MLB record by collecting 10 consecutive hits in the 5th inning of Monday, August 6th's game with the Padres. (game recap)
