Albert Pujols made history on Thursday afternoon as his Los Angeles Angels ran out 13-0 winners over the Detroit Tigers. Pujols hammered a solo home run in the third inning of the game to give his team a 6-0 lead, but perhaps more importantly is that it was his 2000th career RBI.
In so doing, he became just the third player all-time to reach that lofty mark, behind only Hank Aaron and Alex Rodriguez. Many contend that Babe Ruth is also on the list, but he played in a time where the stat did not exist. Overall, the Angels hit five homers in the runaway win, while starter Felix Pena threw seven innings with just three hits given up.
