Albert Pujols hits monster go-ahead homer, ties Mel Ott for 23rd on all-time list

The Angels have been on a tear of late -- riding a nine-game home winning streak to move within 3 1/2 games of the first-place A's. Much of that has to do with this guy, but during Saturday's win over the Astros, the Halos turned to their first baseman. You know, that guy with 500-plus homers:


The go-ahead home run, his 511th, put Pujols in a tie with Mel Ott for 23rd all-time. And when you do something like that, with that much authority, you have to watch it all the way out of the ballpark.


Keep crushin', Albert.
