Watch as Albert Pujols hits his 499th career homer Tuesday off Nationals starter Taylor Jordan:

Albert’s seven home runs this year are tied with Arizona’s Mark Trumbo for the major league lead.

The 34-year-old first baseman boasts a strong .930 OPS through 89 plate appearances this season, and he now needs just one more long ball to become the 26th member of the 500 career home run club.
