Pujols Joins 300 Home Run Club

By  | 

ST. LOUIS -- Albert Pujols hit his 300th career home run tonight. He's the fifth-youngest player to reach the milestone.
The Cardinals slugger lined his 18th homer of the season on a
2-2 pitch from the Cubs' Bob Howry in the eighth inning, the ball
banging off the foul pole in left field. He beat Hall of Famer Mel
Ott for the fifth-fastest by one day.
Pujols reached the mark at 28 years, 170 days. Alex Rodriguez of
the Yankees is the youngest player to reach 300 homers at 27 years,
249 days.
Pujols is 5-for-9 with two homers in his career against Howry.
