ST. LOUIS (AP) – Albert Pujols got his 2,000th hit and Edwin Jackson pitched seven innings in his debut with St. Louis, lifting the Cardinals to a 9-2 win Friday over the Chicago Cubs.

David Freese hit a three-run homer and Ryan Theriot, who entered as a pinch-hitter in the sixth, drove in three runs on two hits.

In his 10th season, Pujols is 263rd overall on the major league hit list. He’s the fifth Cardinal to get 2,000 hits in a career. He is the 12th quickest player to 2,000 hits in history, taking 1,650 games.

Pujols joined Stan Musial (3,630), Lou Brock (2,713), Rogers Hornsby (2,110) and Enos Slaughter (2,063) as the only Cardinals to get 2,000 with the franchise.
