Pu­jols col­lects 2,000th ca­reer RBI on solo shot

The Tribune (SLO) - - Weather -

Al­bert Pu­jols be­came the third player with 2,000 ca­reer RBIs, hit­ting a solo homer in the third in­ning Thurs­day to help the Los An­ge­les An­gels rout the Tigers 13-0 in Detroit.

The three-time MVP joined Hank Aaron (2,297) and Alex Ro­driguez (2,086) as the three players to reach the mile­stone since 1920.

Ryan Carpenter (0-1) threw Pu­jols a fast­ball over the mid­dle of the plate and the slug­ger sent the 2-0 pitch deep into the right­field seats.

Pu­jols re­ceived an ova­tion by the sparse crowd at Comer­ica Park, where his ac­com­plish­ment was rec­og­nized on the videoboard.
