Player Notes
Albert Pujols finished 3-for-4 with two runs scored Sunday in the Angels' 2-0 defeat of the Yankees.

Advice: Pujols rapped singles in three different innings, passing Ken Griffey Jr. on MLB's all-time hits leaderboard with his sharp line drive to center in the bottom of the first. The 36-year-old slugger is up to 2,784 hits for his career, to go along with 583 homers, 1,794 RBI, and 1,651 runs scored.

Albert Pujols connected for a solo home run to provide the Angels' only dent in the scoreboard in a loss to the Yankees on Saturday.

Advice: The Angels were behind 5-0 in the last inning when Pujols took Dellin Betances over the left field wall. It was his 23rd homer of the season and 582nd of his career. He is batting only .249 but his 96 RBI rank fourth in the majors.

Albert Pujols went 1-for-4 with a two-run double in Thursday's win over the Mariners.

Advice: The Angels entered the eighth inning holding a slim 3-2 advantage, but they would score three runs in the frame for a little breathing room. Two of those three would come home on Pujols' 14th double of the season. The veteran slugger can no longer muster the same daunting triple-slashes of his youth (.249/.316/.425 for the season as a whole), but still offers strong counting production with his 22 homers and 95 RBI.

Thu, Aug 18 Rotoworld
Albert Pujols launched a three-run home run in Tuesday's 7-6 win over the Mariners.

Advice: The Angels trailed 4-1 entering the top of the sixth inning, but after Ariel Miranda walked a pair of batters, Pujols teed off on a Nick Vincent offering for a three-run, game-tying home run. That would be his only hit of the game, but sometimes, you just need the one. After an entertaining back-and-forth final few innings, the Angels would eventually win on the strength of a Cliff Pennington RBI triple in the ninth. For the season, the aged Pujols is slashing .249/.316/.426 with 22 homers and a healthy 92 RBI over 446 at-bats. Even as his triple-slash continues to underwhelm, his counting stats are legitimately impressive. At this pace, he will almost certainly finish with his most RBI since 2010, back when he played for the Cardinals and drove in 118.
