Pujols gets 2,000 RBI with HR; fan keeps ball


Albert Pujols recorded his 2,000th career RBI with a solo home run in the third inning of the Los Angeles Angels‘ game against the Detroit Tigers on Thursday.

Pujols is only the third player in Major League Baseball history to drive in 2,000 or more runs in a career, joining Alex Rodriguez (2,086) and Hank Aaron (2,297) in achieving the feat.

Pujols belted a fastball from Tigers left-hander Ryan Carpenter into the right-field seats during the Angels’ 13-0 victory. He received an ovation by the sparse crowd at Comerica Park, where his accomplishment was recognized on the videoboards and by the public address announcer.
