Albert Pujols became just the third player to record 2000 RBIs since 1920 with a solo third-inning home run in the Angels 13-0 whitewash of the Tigers on Thursday. Alex Rodriguez (2086) and Hank Aaron (2297) were the others to accomplish the feat. Babe Ruth and Cap Anson are also thought to have turned the trick prior to 1920 but those numbers are in dispute as the statistic didn’t become officially recorded until 1920. The home run, an opposite field blast off southpaw Ryan Carpenter, was the sixth of the year for Pujols and the the 639th of his illustrious career.
