Albert Pujols has memorable last series at Wrigley

Since the start of the second half. Albert Pujols’ at-bats have become must-watch television.

On Monday, Pujols was in the lineup and playing first base, making some Gold Glove-caliber moves and snagging throws from his crafty teammates. He was 2-for-4 with one run, which came from a pretty spectacular homer to left-center field.

Take a look at the blast here:

This was home run number 693 in Pujols’ legendary career and the 14th of this fantastic season. The homer traveled 373 feet at 99.7 mph.

He was 1-for-4 on Tuesday afternoon as the Cardinals designated hitter.

On Tuesday evening, he was a pinch hitter in the ninth inning. He was hit by a pitch from Franmil Reyes, pulling duties as designated hitter turned pitcher.
