Pujols' homer a towering blast

Albert Pujols' two-run blast off Astros starter Mike Fiers on Thursday only traveled 360 feet, but it reached an apex of 149 feet, the highest by an Angel in over a year, per ESPN's Home Run Tracker.

The Angels won the first meeting of the season against the Astros but then dropped the next 11 in a row. But this is the wild-card race nobody wants to win, so of course Ricky Nolasco and two relievers combined for an eight-hit shutout.

Just two weeks after suffering a fractured skull from a line drive, Matt Shoemaker visited his teammates prior to Sunday's game against the Blue Jays. "The guys are great.

Albert Pujols walked in the second inning on Sunday after not drawing a base on balls in any of his 109 previous plate appearances (since Aug. 18).
