In his continued quest to defy age, Cardinals slugger Albert Pujols continues to etch his name in the history books,
doing so in four different ways in the Cardinals victory over the Diamondbacks Saturday night.
In the career records book, not only did Pujols inch ever closer to the fabled 700 home run plateau, slugging home runs number 691 and 692,
Pujols passed fellow famed Cardinal Stan Musial for second on the All-Time total bases leader board,
moving into second place all time with 6141 total bases. Now sitting behind only Hank Aaron, who leads by a comfortable margin of 6856 total bases.
Pujols' two longballs also move him into a tie for 16th all-time for home runs after the age of forty, bringing his tally to 36.
The four hits also moves Pujols into 51st for most hits by a player after their fortieth birthday.
Bringing him to 152 knocks and passing Derek Jeter, George Brett, and Chaney White.
