Question of the day: Who's a tougher out, Braun or Pujols?

Ryan Braun and Albert Pujols rank first and second in total bases this postseason, with 25 and 21, respectively. They are imposing threats in the No. 3 spots in the Brewers' and Cardinals' lineups in the National League Championship Series, which resumes with Game 3 in St. Louis tonight at 8 ET.

Braun is seizing the moment to put up youth-ball numbers, batting .500 (13-for-26) and leading everyone this postseason with a sick 1.528 OPS. He has had multiple hits in every game except the two Division Series games the Brewers played in Arizona.

Pujols is a combined .323 (72-for-223) in 62 career postseason games with St. Louis. That includes a .414 (12-for-29) average this month, and he almost single-handedly beat Milwaukee with four extra-base hits on Monday to force a 1-1 series tie.
