Pujols hits latest milestone home run in Angels' 11-2 rout of Mariners

Anaheim, California, Jul 13 (efe-epa).- Designated hitter Albert Pujols hit two round-trippers in the Los Angeles Angels' 11-2 rout of the Seattle Mariners, the second of which tied him with Ken Griffey Jr. for sixth place on Major League Baseball's career home-run list.

Anaheim, California, Jul 13 (efe-epa).- Designated hitter Albert Pujols hit two round-trippers in the Los Angeles Angels' 11-2 rout of the Seattle Mariners, the second of which tied him with Ken Griffey Jr. for sixth place on Major League Baseball's career home-run list.

Pujols connected on his 629th career home run in the bottom of the first inning of Thursday night's game at Angel Stadium, a blast over the wall in right-center field off of Mariners starting pitcher James Paxton that gave the Angels a 3-1 lead.

After left fielder Justin Upton had stretched the Angels' lead to 8-1 with a three-run homer in the bottom of the sixth off of reliever Nick Rumbelow, Pujols stepped to the plate and hit No. 630.

The Angels tacked on two more runs in the bottom of the eighth inning to cruise to an easy win.

The home team's pitchers were nearly as dominant as its hitters, with starter Tyler Skaggs (7-5) picking up the win after allowing just one earned run in six innings.

Relievers Noe Ramirez and Oliver Drake held the Mariners to just one run over the final three innings.

Paxton (8-4), who left the game in the first inning with a back injury, took the loss.

The Angels improved to 48-46 with the win but are still 13 games behind the first-place Houston Astros in the American League West division. The Mariners fell to 58-36 and are three games behind the Astros.

But the story of the night was Pujols.

The 38-year-old Dominican baseball great is still more than 100 home runs behind the all-time leader, Barry Bonds, who set the record in 2007 and finished his career with 762 home runs (although many baseball fans believe he used steroids and that his achievement is therefore tainted).

Bonds has never publicly admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs and his conviction for obstructing a government probe into steroid distribution was overturned in 2015.

But the suspicion that he used PEDs is so strong that he has not yet been inducted into baseball's Hall of Fame.

The No. 2 slugger on the list is Hank Aaron (755), followed by New York Yankees legend Babe Ruth (714); Alex Rodriguez (696), who has admitted to using PEDs; and Willie Mays (660).
