Pujols ties Sammy Sosa on all-time list with home run No. 609

It wasn't a monster shot, but, boy, did it get out in a hurry.

With Ben Revere on second base and a full count, Albert Pujols laced a low line drive that just cleared the wall in left field. The home run gave the Angels a 2-0 lead in the first and moved Pujols into a tie with Sammy Sosa on the all-time home run list with 609 homers.
