Stark: Ten numbers that define Albert Pujols' amazing career

With a fifth-inning single Friday night off Seattle Mariners starter Mike Leake at Safeco Field, it was the 3,000th hit of Pujols' career, making him the 32nd player to join the historic club.

With hit number 3,000, Pujols joined a group of just three players - Willie Mays, Hank Aaron and Alex Rodriguez - in the 3,000-hit/600-home run club. Two-way Japanese sensation Shohei Ohtani's arrival as the Angels' primary DH has put Pujols in the field, where he remains a capable defender. But since joining the Angels in 2012, the Dominican slugger has hit just.268 with a.776 OPS over six-plus seasons - though his 928 hits and 175 homers are nothing to snuff at.

Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Marco Gonzales reacts after giving up a three-run home run to Los Angeles Angels' Jefry Marte in the sixth inning of a baseball game Saturday, May 5, 2018, in Seattle. Justin Anderson and Jim Johnson combined for 2 innings of one-hit relief with three strikeouts to preserve the shutout. Outside of Barry Bonds, Pujols was the best and most feared hitter in the game - witness the 44 intentional walks he received in 2009. Solarte went 8 for 10 with seven RBIs in the doubleheader.

Mookie Betts cracked his major league-leading 13th homer and Rafael Devers provided two of the Red Sox's four solo shots off Bartolo Colon in a 5-1 downing of the Rangers. Right-hander Garcia struck out two in a perfect eighth.

Instead, he was so good in spring training that Tony La Russa insisted he make the big league team.

Also within reach by the All-Star break for Pujols is Rod Carew who is 25th all-time at 3,053 hits and then Ricky Henderson at 3,055 hits and Craig Biggio at 3,060 hits. Carew and Pujols are the only players to record their 3,000th hit with the Angels. The four-game split ended the Diamondbacks' string of nine straight series victories to start the season.

Bautista joins Braves • Jose Bautista returned to the major leagues with Atlanta, which inserted the 37-year-old at third base and fifth in the batting order Friday vs. San Francisco. Suarez is 10-for-29 with three doubles, two homers and 13 RBIs in eight games since returning from a broken thumb. He added another hit in the ninth inning to pass Roberto Clemente on the career list, a two-run single that also ensured the Angels would walk away with a victory. In 40 innings, Mikolas has whiffed 31 and walked only two. His time spent on the Cardinals was unmatched in terms of skill and talent. But, he's still playing and adding on to his absurd career statistics.

Anderson said that, although Pujols dashed his hopes repeatedly, he was never one of the fans who booed him. It's people like you with their greedy agents who take something that is beautiful and perfect and turn it into "business".

With Albert Pujols becoming the fourth player to reach 3,000 hits and 600 home runs, check out the highlights of his career told by Tim Kurkjian.

Unfortunately an elbow injury forced him to the 60-day DL, and he won't be back until June at the earliest.
