Albert Pujols has wheels.
Well, not the typical wheels you’d see on a fast baserunner such as his teammate Tyler O’Neill.
But the St. Louis Cardinals legend can bust out the wheels from time to time.
After being caught trying to steal third base last week against the Milwaukee Brewers, Pujols made up for his mistake in Tuesday night’s game against the Miami Marlins at LoanDepot Park.
Pujols picked up two hits in last night’s game and was standing on first after his second base hit with Tommy Edman at the plate.
Edman shot one into the right center field gap and The Machine was off to the races.
He scored all the way from first to give the Cardinals a 4-0 lead.
If you had Albert Pujols scoring from first base at ANY point this year on your bingo card… Well… Here ya go.

Pujols Busts Out The Wheels
Pujols may not be your fastest baserunner, but he’s a smart baserunner who knows when it’s time to turn on the jets.
With the throw coming in just before he touched home plate, it looked like it might’ve ended up being a close play.
But it was off-line, and Pujols’ wheels came in handy.
Even at 42, he is still a tremendous athlete and watching him run the bases is a sight to behold for any baseball fan.
It should also be a lesson for everybody trying to play baseball who may be concerned that they aren’t fast enough.
If Albert Pujols can score all the way from first, so can you.
The Cards legend has seen it all.
Watching him put his wheels to work is one of the most fun things to do as a baseball fan.
We can only hope there’ll be more moments like this when Pujols needs to bust out the wheels.
