Albert Pujols’ arrival at Angels camp was kind of a big deal and amid all the hoopla Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com snapped this picture of Pujols shaking hands with the man who gave him $240 million, Arte Moreno. (Moreno, incidentally, bought the Angels in 2003 … for $184 million.)

Red Sox center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. scaled the center field fence to rob Padres shortstop Luis Urías of a solo home run in the fourth inning of Sunday afternoon’s game. Urías was trying to take advantage of a 0-1 slider from Ryan Brasier. Had Bradley not made the grab, the Padres’ lead would have been extended to 4-1.

Unfortunately for the Red Sox, they weren’t able to take advantage of Bradley’s effort, dropping Sunday’s contest 3-1. They still won the series against the Padres, however. The Sox will continue their road trip for two games against the Rockies followed by three versus the Angels.
