Dodgers: Albert Pujols Goes Yard Again for Number 700 at Dodger Stadium

Welp. The internet ink wasn’t dry on the last article but here we are again. The legendary Albert Pujols has connected on home run number 700 in his illustrious career. And fittingly, he did it at Dodger Stadium.

Albert wasted no time on Friday night, hitting two home runs and driving in 5 runs batted in in just 3 at-bats. Both numbers 699 and 700 were absolute no doubters.

Here’s what number 700 looked like…

Pujols had it tailormade, facing two of the most homer-prone Dodgers pitchers on the staff tonight in Andrew Heaney (12 HRs in 61 innings) and Phil Bickford (11 HRs in 60 innings).

The sea of true blue faithful gave Albert a long standing ovation after the occasion. Pujols also went up to high five fellow Dominican Hall of Famer Adrian Beltre who was in the front row at Dodger Stadium for the occasion.

Congratulations to the final player who will ever hit 700 home runs in Major League Baseball history.

  1. The Dodgers look terrible, right at the time when they need to be upping their game for the postseason.

    1. The inconsistent play lately (lots of errors)
      started when Roberts went to pre-playoffs
      game plan of restin’ his regulars. Hopefully
      he knows exactly when ‘the regular unit’ should
      trot out daily again before the season climaxes so
      they ‘jive again together!’

  2. I’m so glad I was able to see the great Albert Pujols hit his historic 699 & 700 home runs last night even though our Dodgers lost and looked terrible doing so!! I am hoping they will step up their game soon before the playoffs!!
