Albert Pujols hits career 698th home run in historic chase

Albert Pujols just needs two extra homers to keep himself in the 700 Grand Slam club - the sport's most selective society.

The 42-year-old impressed on his 698th vocational Grand Slam on Friday night. A similar impact saw the St. Louis Cardinals go down 4-4 against the Cincinnati Reds.

The tension of 700 on the Pujols is not over yet. It was flourishing at the time, in fact.

In his last 47 games, he is a .324 hitter with 15 homers, 35 RBIs and 1.086 operations.

Along that stretch, they have increased their normal from .198 to .264 and their operation from .624 to .865.

These last few homers have also been understood in the same way. Five of their last six Grand Slams have either tied a game or given the Cardinals the lead.

His 697th, two-run shot on Sunday, gave the Cards a 3-2 lead in the highest point of the 10th innings against the Pittsburgh Privateers.

The Cardinals dominated the match 6-5 and Ryan Helsley made the save with an impeccable innings.
