Albert finally tags Andy

5/29/2012

Albert Pujols had gone 24 career at-bats without hitting a home run off Andy Pettitte, including his first at-bat of tonight's Yankees-Angels game. But that streak ended for both men in the third inning, when Pujols clubbed a 1-0 fastball way over the left-field fence for his eighth bomb of the year. The two-run shot gave the Angels a 3-0 lead; they had taken a 1-0 lead on rookie Mike Trout's RBI triple two batters earlier. Pujols, who did not hit his first home run of 2012 until May 6, now has five in his last eight games.
