Albert Pujols hits home run No. 702, ties Babe Ruth in another stat category

Oct 3, 2022

St. Louis Cardinals slugger Albert Pujols added to his career home-run total on Sunday in what will likely be his final regular-season home game at Busch Stadium.

Pujols hit homer No. 702 off Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Roansy Contreras. It was a solo shot in the third inning of the game. He was later taken out of the game, along with Adam Wainwright and Yadier Molina, and replaced by Juan Yepez.

Pujols finished the game 2-for-3 with three RBI. The three RBI gave him 64 for the second and 2,214 for his career. He’s now tied for second all-time in RBI with Babe Ruth.

"I’m really blessed to be back here," Pujols said before the game. "To finish my career where everything started, it means a lot."
