  • Albert Pujols right embraces coach Alfredo Griffin after getting his 3,000th hit

Albert Pujols, already one of the greatest players to ever set foot on a diamond, became the 32nd member of baseball's 3,000-hit club Friday with a single off Seattle Mariners right-hander Mike Leake.

Los Angeles Angels' Ian Kinsler slides into home as he scores against the Seattle Mariners during the first inning of a baseball game Saturday, May 5, 2018, in Seattle.

Andrew Heaney (1-1) yielded five hits and one run over six solid innings to earn his second major league victory since September 2015.

PHOENIX - Arizona reliever Jorge De La Rosa threw a pair of run-scoring wild pitches during an eighth-inning rally that sent the Dodgers to the victory.

In his 17 seasons prior to this year, Pujols had at least 101 hits in each season.

The next closest active player to 3,000 career hits is Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera, who collected hit No. 2,666 on Thursday afternoon by going 1-for-4 in his return from a three-game absence dealing with biceps spasms.

Twins 6, White Sox 4: Third baseman Eduardo Escobar ripped two solo home runs and doubled in a third run, and Brian Dozier and Logan Morrison added solo homers as Minnesota scored early and beat Chicago at Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago. He did it in style too, blasting a grand slam in the fourth inning against the Brewers. His 625 doubles - 11th most all time - account for 20.8 percent of his hits, and that total is among the top five percentages in the 3,000-hit club. He belted a towering three-run homer in the fourth as the first batter after Price was pulled from the game. Just try to remember how he used to dominate games.

I can go on and on about this guy, but I think you get the point.

Mogherini: Iran nuclear deal will hold

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.

Pujols became the second Dominican player to reach 3,000 hits by joining Beltre.

Mike Trout, 26, a center fielder with the Los Angeles Angels and a 2009 Millville High School graduate, was the 2014 and 2016 American League Most Valuable Player. "I've just got to keep working and executing and playing better".

He has been an fantastic hitter though since debuting right before his 20th birthday and still could have a decade-plus of superb play where his career hit total could easily approach the 3,000 mark towards the end of his career. Dodgers pitchers had 13 strikeouts with five walks.

Angels: Garrett Richards (3-1, 3.58 ERA) looks to rebound from a miserable start last weekend against the Yankees when the Angels open a series at Seattle.

If you've kept up with baseball since 2001, then there is one name that everyone knows; Albert Pujols.

Shortstop Dansby Swanson was placed on the Braves' 10-day disabled list with left wrist inflammation.
