Albert Pujols reaches 2,000 RBIs and Angels rout Tigers 13-0 Albert Pujols became the third player with 2,000 career RBIs, hitting a solo homer in the third inning to help the Los Angeles Angels rout the Detroit Tigers 13-0.

Ryan Carpenter (0-1) threw Pujols a fastball over the middle of the plate and the slugger sent the 2-0 pitch deep into the right-field seats.
