Albert Pujols Launches Home Run 702, Ties Babe Ruth for RBI Total
He's done it again. On the final home game of the regular season, Albert Pujols hit career home run 702 and tied Babe Ruth for 2nd all-time in runs batted in.
Albert Pujols home runs this season have not only made history, but in many cases tied or given the St. Louis Cardinals the lead in the game. That was the case today as career home run 702 also tied the baseball game at 4 - 4 versus the Pittsburgh Pirates.
That's career run batted in 2214 which ties Albert Pujols with The Great Bambino, Babe Ruth.
This adds even more drama and history to a game that had one of the most emotional pregame ceremonies in St. Louis Cardinals history as both Albert Pujols and Yadier Molina were honored by the team for their incredible careers.
I have a sneaking suspicion this is a story that has not seen its final chapter written.
