Pujols ranks among greats

Albert Pujols knocked in his 100th RBI of the season in Thursday's win over the Blue Jays, giving him 13 seasons with 100 or more RBIs. That's tied with Jimmie Foxx and Lou Gehrig for the second-most such seasons in MLB history since 1920, when RBIs were first recorded (ESPN Stats & Info).

Miguel Cabrera and Albert Pujols both had four-hit games tonight. They're second and third in the majors in four-hit games since Pujols debuted in 2001. The leader? No surprise, it's Ichiro with 53. Cabrera has 44 and Pujols 42. Pujols' 584th home run also means he broke a tie with Mark McGwire for 10th on the all-time list.
