Looks Inside the League

Play of the Day:

  • 8/19: Patrick Sandoval Throws Complete Game Shutout Against Tigers 
  • 8/20: Albert Pujols Goes 4-4 with 2 HR 🚀

There was no shortage of runs in the Cardinals-Diamondbacks game on Saturday. With a final score of 16-7, Pujols connected on hits in all four ABs with two homers built into those 16 runs. As of Saturday, Pujols had 6,137 total bases, moving him up to second place all time past Stan Musial. Also keep your eyes peeled, he’s less than 10 homers away from the 700 club. 

  • 8/21: Mark Canha Rips Game-Tying and Go-Ahead Homers 
  • 8/22: Jordan Montgomery Throws Complete Game Shutout; 1 Hit on 99 Pitches
  • 8/23: Mike Trout gets 1,500th Hit with moonshot HR 🌖

It might not have been the outcome the Angels were hoping for on Tuesday, but Mike Trout sure as hell got what he needed. Top of the 6th, Trout steps up and absolutely sends one. A home run that nails the catwalk at Tropicana Field before landing in front of Arozarena. Trout got his 1,500th career hit after missing a month due to injuries.

  • 8/24: Julio Rodriguez Gets 20th HR, Giving Him a Spot in the 20/20 Club
