Watch as Albert Pujols jumps on this Sonny Gray pitch in the second inning Wednesday

It was the 35th home run of the year for Pujols, who is now just one of four players in the history of Major League Baseball to reach the 35-homer plateau in 10 of his first 15 major league seasons. The other names on that list: Alex Rodriguez, Mike Schmidt, and Willie Mays. Not too shabby. It was also the 555th home run of Pujols’ career, tying him with Manny Ramirez at 14th on the all-time home run leaderboard.
