Los Angeles Angels first baseman Albert Pujols became the 32nd player in Major League Baseball history to register 3,000 hits when he laced a single off Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Mike Leake in the 5th inning of Friday's game. Then he walked on a 3-2 pitch in the fourth inning after a 10-pitch at-bat and would come around to score on an Andrelton Simmons single giving the Angels a 1-0 lead.

Baltimore strung together four singles and scored two runs in the sixth, but Barria pitched his way out of the inning and left to a standing ovation. Between his rookie season, in which he won Rookie of the Year, and the end of his 2010 season, Pujols finished each season batting no less than.314 with slugging percentages under.600 in only three of those seasons.

In his 18th season and 17 years, one month and four days after his first career hit, Albert Pujols collected No. 3,000 late Friday. His 308 intentional walks are the second most all-time and while he is just the second player all-time to get 300 free passes, he will certainly not catch up to the leader, Barry Bonds, who was walked intentionally an insane 688 times. Cabrera had just returned from missing three games with biceps spasms when he injured the hamstring while running in the sixth inning.

Still just 26 years old (turns 27 on August 6), what hurts Trout's chances are the fact he has walked on 14.2 percent of his career plate appearances.

Going even further, Pujols is only the fourth member of the 3,000-600 club, joining Aaron, Mays and Rodriguez as players with 3,000 hits to also reach 600 homers. The rally caused CC Sabathia to get a no-decision after he held his old team to three hits over six scoreless innings, lowering his ERA to 1.39.

Right-hander Gerrit Cole struck out a career-high 16 and gave up only one hit in his first career shutout and Houston broke a three-game losing streak with a victory over Arizona at Chase Field.
