Albert Pujols now 25th on all-time career home run list after going 3-for-4 with two home runs, two RBI, and two runs scored Sunday.
Pujols is now tied with Eddie Murray for 25th most career-home runs with 504 and is five from tying Gary Sheffied for 24th all-time. The home runs were Pujols' 11th and 12th of the season to put him on pace to hit 45. Should Pujols reach 45 home runs he would move into sole possession of 16th place on the all-time home run list one ahead of Mickey Mantle's 536 career home runs.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Marc Krauss went 1-for-4 with a solo home run on Thursday in Toronto.
Krauss is hitting only .150 with a .350 slugging percentage after launching his first home run of the season. It was just his seventh game of the season, but there’s no doubt he’ll need to cut down on the strikeouts if he’s ever going to be able to showcase the decent pop he has. The left-handed hitter was called up from AAA to try and infuse some offense in Anaheim and was slugging .639 over his past 10 games. With Matt Joyce really struggling, expect Krauss to steal some of his at-bats over the next few weeks. Analysis: Kevin Luchansky
