Pujols eyes history

Angels slugger Albert Pujols will again try to record his 3,000th hit on Friday. If he succeeds, he’ll become the 32nd player in history to reach that mark. If he fails, hey, he’ll get another shot Saturday. Baseball is great like that.

Pujols enters the night with 2,999 hits, the result of having notched three hits (all of the extra-base variety) in his previous two games. He came to the plate three times on Thursday after a second-inning double, but those plate appearances resulted in a hit-by-pitch and a pair of in-play outs, all but ensuring no. 3,000 won’t come at home.

Pujols’s Angels are now in Seattle, where they’ll square off against Mike Leake and the Mariners. Pujols is familiar with Leake, having faced him 13 times. In 11 at-bats, he’s notched four hits — that’s a .364 average for those wondering. That’s a small sample and not particularly predictive in any way, but there’s a fair chance all the same that Pujols gets no. 3,000 tonight.
