Before Beltre, Mariners outfielder Ichiro Suzuki tripled for his 3,000th Major League Baseball hit on August 7, 2016 and Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez achieved the milestone June 19, 2015. Congratulations to him, " Leake said.

"I remember my [second] at-bat". But Pujols couldn't quite do it, eventually flying out to right and deflating his eager home fans in the eighth inning of the Angels' 12-3 win. I say, "Yes." They say, "Wow, what team?" I'll say, "Well, I beat him for the Most Valuable Player". Then I hit a pitch middle-away, and I hit a groundball, and Neifi Perez nearly caught it, but it went through. Three days before, they told me I was going to make the ballclub. "I was able to start on the last day of the road trip and getting it then".

Over the last seven seasons in Los Angeles, Pujols has collected 927 hits, including 175 homers.

Pujols received a standing ovation from the crowd at Safeco Field and was given the baseball and first base as a memento.

One of the most impressive aspects of Pujols' career is that he has never struck out 100 times in a season.

The New Orleans Pelicans are averaging 113.4 points on 49.5 percent shooting and allowing 109.4 points on 45 percent shooting. Draymond Green leads the Warriors in every other notable statistical category, and he's kept Davis in check with his defense.


"Some guys in this era think the strikeout is a little overrated", Pujols told ESPN. "It's something in this game I really, really don't like".

The three-time MVP and 10-time All-Star spent his first 11 seasons with the St. Louis Cardinals, the club he broke into the majors with at 21 years old and earned National League rookie of the year.

In his 17 seasons prior to this year, Pujols had at least 101 hits in each season. Servais was also a member of the Angels' front office alongside Dipoto when they signed Pujols.

Despite teaming with Mike Trout since 2012, the Angels have made just one playoff appearance since Pujols joined the team. He signed a 10-year contract worth over $240 million with the Angels in 2011. He's the first player to reach the mark since Adrian Beltre past year against Baltimore.
