Watch Albert Pujols Become 4th All-Time in Home Runs vs Pirates
Albert Pujols now stands alone in 4th on the all-time Major League Baseball home run list thanks to a 9th inning home run versus the Pittsburgh Pirates today. Thanks to a new video share by the Cardinals, you can watch it happen.
The Cardinals entered the 9th inning of Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates trailing 2-0. After Tommy Edman doubled, Cory Dickerson doubled him in. It was then that Albert Pujols stepped to the plate and made history.
It was Saturday night that Albert hit career home run #696.
This home run versus Pittsburgh leaves Albert just 3 shy of 700 career home runs. There are 22 more games in the St. Louis Cardinals regular season to see if he can join Babe Ruth, Henry Aaron and Barry Bonds as the only players to reach that career milestone.
