On August 3, 2004 — In a game in which Cardinal first baseman Albert Pujols becomes the first player in history to hit at least 30 homers in each of his first four big league seasons, Tony Batista goes deep twice, knotting the score in the ninth and winning the game in the 12th. The Expos third baseman’s 199th and 200th career blasts help Montreal beat St. Louis in extra innings, 10-6.
