Additional Information: 3RD BASE - USED IN INNINGS 6-9 GAME #4 NLDS This is the actual base used in the key play of the series when Albert Pujols threw out Chase Utley at third base. This base was the ACTUAL base in which Albert Pujols threw out Chase Utley at 3rd base on October 5th, 2011. This was one of the GREATEST plays in St. Louis Cardinals PLAYOFF HISTORY!! In the top of the sixth, with the Cardinals holding a one-run lead, Chase Utley broke for second with the pitch on an apparent hit-and-run. Hunter Pence hit a grounder to shortstop. As Rafael Furcal went to throw the ball to first base and record the easy out, Utley took a huge gamble and tried to get to third base. Pujols saw Utley take off, and came off the bag to get the ball and throw Utley out at third base. He got him by several feet with a perfect throw -- see the picture above. Had Pujols stayed on the base, Utley would have been on third with just one out and Ryan Howard coming to the plate. A sacrifice fly would then tie the game. But Pujols instinctively came off the bag and nailed the lead runner.
