Cardinals' Pujols hits 702nd home run, ties Babe Ruth for career runs batted in

Watch as St. Louis Cardinals designated hitter Albert Pujols hits the 702nd home run of his MLB career in his final regular season home game at Busch Stadium while facing the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Albert Pujols is going out with a bang, hitting his 702nd home run on Sunday in what will be his final regular-season home game in St. Louis before he is due to retire.

In the process, Pujols made some history, tying Babe Ruth in career runs batted in with 2,214.

Pujols will have a chance to add more, as his dinger only came during the third inning of the Cardinals' game against the Pirates. Pujols is fourth all-time in career home runs, 12 behind Ruth.
