Pujols joins 2K RBI club

Los Angeles Angels slugger Albert Pujols etched his name into an exclusive baseball fraternity Thursday in Detroit.
Pujols tagged 2-0 fastball for his sixth home run of the season in the top of the third inning at Comerica Park to join Hank Aaron and Alex Rodriguez as the only players since RBIs became an official stat in 1920 with 2,000 runs batted in.
The bomb to left-center field put Pujols at 2,000, behind Rodriguez (2,086) and Aaron (2,297).
It was the 639th career home run for Pujols, which is sixth all-time. Willie Mays (660) and Rodriguez (696) ahead of the 39-year-old Pujols, who had 19 homers last season.
