ST. LOUIS – Sunday’s Cardinals 7-3 win over the Minnesota Twins had an added cherry on top for the Busch Stadium faithful.

Catcher Yadier Molina recorded a pair of hits in the game, moving him to fourth all-time on the Cardinals hits list and passing former teammate Albert Pujols. And in a moment of sports serendipity, No. 4 and No. 5 are ranked fourth and fifth, respectively.

Molina eclipsed his friend by hitting a single in the fifth inning.

After the game, Pujols went on social media to congratulate his “little brother” and heralded Molina as the best catcher in baseball.
