Pujols Strokes No. 499, Then No. 500

by Jason Epstein

Congratulations, King Albert:

The impressive milestone notwithstanding, I’m guessing that the 34-year-old Pujols is even happier to have rediscovered the stroke that made him a St. Louis legend for eleven seasons. He has eight home runs and five doubles in a mere 92 plate appearances this season, good for a .619 slugging percentage and .406 weighted on-base average.

The Halos won their second in a row at Nationals Park, 7–2.
