Adrian Beltre, his lifelong opponent, fellow compatriot, and dedicated friend, received a double high-five from Albert Pujols as he passed home plate and dashed to the outfield. He thanked the others of the St. Louis Cardinals players and colleagues, hugged Yadier Molina, hugged Adam Wainwright, took off his headgear for such Dodger Stadium fans, and afterwards he sought some privacy.
The guy dubbed “The Machine” suddenly became exposed as he careered down the dugout stairs and into a deserted corridor.
In the midst of a fantastic two-homer performance on Friday evening, Albert Pujols surpassed the monumental milestone of 700 homers, and it eventually reached him. But it went beyond that. It was because all five of his kids could attend because it took place in Los Angeles. He claimed that this event occurred at Dodger Stadium, the ballpark that accoring to him gave him life and motivated him to keep on going.
Albert Pujols Reaches The 700th Homer Mark As Well:
In the third inning, Pujols connected with a fastball two-strike down the middle off the Los Angeles Dodgers left-hander Andrew Heaney for run no. 699 that travelled 434 feet into outfield.
He joined Barry Bonds, Hank Aaron, and Babe Ruth as the fourth member of the illustrious 700 grand homer club after launching a hanging slider off righty Phil Bickford 389 meters in the fourth inning, helping his side to an 11-0 victory.
The 42-year-old Pujols is the only one of the other three to hit Nos. 699 and 700 in the same game. He is third all-time in lifetime RBIs with 2,208, trailing only Hank Aaron (2,297 total). He also passed the milestone of 1,400 additional hits, which only Bonds and Aaron have surpassed.
