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.
