Pujols hits longest home run in six-year-history of Cardinals stadium

ST. LOUIS - Albert Pujols' National League-leading 29th home run in the first inning Sunday night was also the longest at six-year-old Busch Stadium.

Pujols two-run shot off Esmil Rogers off the Colorado Rockies cleared the bleachers beyond the visitor's bullpen in left field and was estimated at 465 feet. It bettered Lance Berkman's 452-foot homer to right off the Reds' Edinson Volquez on July 5.
