Albert Pujols has reached another historic milestone.
The Angels first baseman hit his 1,952nd career RBI in the first inning of Los Angeles’ 7-5 loss to the Twins on Sunday, passing Cardinals great Stan Musial for sixth place on the all-time list.

I’m positive. If you see this, Snacks, take it easy on me, Barkley added as he looked straight into the camera. I don’t know anybody in this league that can run over Snacks. His name is Snacks for a reason.
Barkley has had his nose in the playbook over the last few weeks, and he’s trying to pick up all the intricacies of being an NFL running back, but he’s also learning quickly how to handle some tough love from his veteran teammates.
That’s the plan, Kuechly said, via Jourdan Rodrigue of the Charlotte Observer. That’s how it went last time and everything went well. I don’t anticipate it being different.
Kuechly has had labrum shoulder before – to his left shoulder – and knows what to expect when it comes to his recovery timeline. Following that surgery he was ready for the start of the team’s training camp in 2016.
Kuechly appeared in 15 of 16 regular season games last year and played in Carolina’s playoff loss to the New Orleans Saints. He played through the shoulder injury late in the year and had surgery to repair the damage in February.
He has been able to take part in individuals drills but teams drills have been on hold until training camp.
