Analysis: Pujols has done a nice job of bouncing back from a rough 2013, playing in 154 games thus far after a career-low 99 last year. He's also at 104 RBIs, two shy of his highest total since driving in 118 with St. Louis in 2010.
Sep. 15 8:33 PM PT9:33 PM MT10:33 PM CT11:33 PM ET23:33 ET3:33 GMT11:33 8:33 PM MST10:33 PM EST11:03 PM VEN7:33 UAE (+1)10:33 PM CT-Pujols has left the Los Angeles Angels' game against Seattle due to a cramp in his left hamstring while running out a bases-clearing double. Pujols left in the third inning Monday night after his three-run drive down the left-field line. The three-time NL MVP held the back of his left leg as he slowly jogged to second base while Mike Trout slid under the cutoff man's throw at home.
Analysis: Pujols has 97 RBIs this season. His three-run double tied him with Mike Schmidt for 35th place in baseball history with 1,595 RBIs.

Analysis: Pujols is hitting a solid .336 over his last 27 games with 18 RBIs. His home-run (20) and RBI totals have already surpassed his 17 and 64 from last season, but as his .793 OPS suggests, he's well past his days as a superstar.
