The former MVP and World Series champion has continued his quest for chasing down records and making more history.
Each time he steps out onto the field, he seems to be making history in some way, shape, or form.
Whether it’s the number of games he’s played in or climbing the all-time hits list, Pujols is chasing more history.
On Sunday, manager Oliver Marmol had him in the lineup as the designated hitter, batting seventh, and in the bottom of the fifth, he picked up a key game-tying RBI double, which according to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, put him to within two extra-base hits of tying Stan Musial for third most all-time.

Pujols Closes In On “The Man”
Pujols just does not stop.
He’s essentially a walking history book.
With each hit, he also moves closer and closer to the top of the all-time hit list.
Even in his advanced age, Pujols is proving that he is more than capable of producing in key spots.
He’s also been a solid mentor for the Cardinals’ younger players.
And now he’s close to tying Musial, another Cardinals great, on an all-time list.
Pujols is certainly loved in St. Louis by both players and fans alike.
You can bet both the fans and players are excited to see him get the chance to tie a Cards’ legend, who is perhaps the greatest Cardinal of all-time.
It would be quite something to see Pujols tie this mark.
Again, him being back in St. Louis is more than just sentiment.
He’s there to break records and lead the Cards to another championship.
