Only three other sluggers have hit 700 career home runs, which Albert Pujols did on Friday.
In the fourth inning, Pujols hit his historic home run—his second of the game—off Dodgers right-hander Phil Bickford.
Just 12 days after passing Alex Rodriguez, Pujols joins Barry Bonds (762), Henry Aaron (755) and Babe Ruth (714) in the 700-HR club (696).
He received a standing ovation from the 50,041 spectators at Dodger Stadium after his historic home run. "Al-bert, Al-bert," yelled Cardinals supporters.
At the age of 42, Pujols rejoined the St. Louis Cardinals after departing as a free agent ten years prior.
Pujols rose to superstardom in St. Louis after being selected in the 13th round of the draught, earning three NL MVP awards and two World Series in his first two seasons.
