MLB> Los Angeles Angels star Albert Pujols is now alone in second place on the Major League Baseball career RBI list.  Pujols passed Alex Rodriquez on the list with an RBI single in the fifth inning of Monday Night’s 11-4 loss to the Astro’s in Houston.  That gave him two thousand 87 career RBI’s.  Hank Aaron is the record holder with 22-hundred 97.  Babe Ruth had 22-hundred 14 career RBI’s, but he isn’t officially on the career list because RBI’s did not become an official stat until 1920.
