Pujols Slams Number 600 in Angels Win
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Albert Pujols hit a grand slam for his 600th homer, becoming the ninth member of the club during the fourth inning of the Los Angeles Angels' 7-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Saturday night.
Pujols reached the milestone in theatrical style, putting a low pitch from Ervin Santana (7-3) into Angel Stadium's short left-field porch for his 14th grand slam.
The Anaheim crowd roared while fireworks soared overhead for the 37-year-old's ninth homer of the season and his 155th for the Angels. Pujols moved to the West Coast nearly six years ago after 11 spectacular seasons in St. Louis.
Andrelton Simmons and Kole Calhoun hit back-to-back homers in the third inning for the Angels.
Max Kepler homered for Minnesota.
Game four of the series is this afternoon at 2:37 with Jose Berrios pitching for the Twins, pre-game coverage begins at 1:30 on Newstalk 1340 KROC AM.
