Latest Update Pujols drives in lone run in Angels loss Sat Oct, 04, 01:35 AM
Is every pitcher's nightmare at the plate: incredibly patient, shows pinpoint strike-zone judgment and has a smooth, compact swing with great power. As consistent and unflappable as they come, he also surprises with the odd stolen base. Is also incredibly durable.
Flaws: : Can make his share of mistakes fielding first base and is in decline defensively. Is prone to hitting slumps from time to time. After several years of playing nearly every day, he is starting to slow down a little bit in terms of injury and his dominance against pitchers.
Pujols only has the one hit through two games. The Angels have struggled offensively, and Albert is no exception.Analyst: Steve Pimental
In football parlance, it was a "garbage time" home run as the Angels were down seven runs when Pujols blasted off. He now has 28 home runs with 88 runs scored and 104 RBI. It's been a rebound season for the future hall-of-famer. Analyst: Spencer Silva
With two more runs driven in on Saturday, Pujols has now reached the 100 RBI plateau for the second time in three seasons since signing with the Angels. Although his production fell off a season ago, he has climbed right back into the top five among his position and is now just three home runs away from his 13th 30-plus homer season in his 14 year career.

The Angels will be hoping that this is just a minor injury and that it won't require an extended absence for the slugger. The Angels are expecting Hamilton back around Wednesday and they do not want to lose Pujols now.
