The ScorePujols reflects on 1st career pitching appearance: 'A dream come true'

There isn't much left for St. Louis Cardinals legend Albert Pujols to accomplish in his career, but he tried his hand at something new Sunday - pitching.The 42-year-old entered the game as a reliever in the top of the ninth inning with the Cardinals leading the San Francisco Giants 15-2.

"It wasn't fun giving up two bombs, but I think the fans had a good time, and I'm sure the guys who took me deep did, too."He added: "They made me pay like I've been making pitchers pay for 22 years."Pujols joins Hall of Famer Babe Ruth as the only players in MLB history to hit 600 career home runs and appear in a game as a pitcher, according to Jeff Jones of BellevilleNews.com.Copyright © 2022 Score Media Ventures Inc.
