Albert Pujols doesn’t just stop making history.
When the St. Louis Cardinals brought him back on a one-year, 2.5 2.5 million contract, it wasn’t just for sensitive reasons.
The Cardinals have done exactly what they wanted this season, hitting .260 with two homers and eight RBIs.
Against the New York Mets last night, The Machine made some more history.
He picked up two hits from Mets’ ace Max Scherzer.
The first blow tied him to Eddie Collins for the 10th all-time.
Needless to say, the second placed him 10th on the all-time list.
The Cardinals tweeted a video of Pujol’s second injury celebrating his achievement.

The hits are coming
Hit the machine.
Straight and simple.
He has been in the elite organization for many years, but he has only dominated the baseball field and has risen to the record books.
Even though he is far from what he once was, he is one of the most terrifying hitters in the game and someone you don’t want to encounter in line with the game.
He now has 3,314 hits in his career and is only going to continue hits as he enjoys his final journey with Adam Wainwright and Yadiar Molina.
And as Jim Edmunds mentioned in the video, this at-bat is reminiscent of the old puzzles.
The way he keeps his swing short and compact and moves his hand towards the ball, which he has done throughout his career.
He knows what it takes to be successful and now he’s one more legend on the all-time hit list
Pujols is proving that he is still a very productive player and you cannot underestimate him.
