Los Angeles Angels rookie Ji-Man Choi (whose name rhymes with He-Man, we think) knocked his first-ever dinger Monday night. Nice job, Ji-Man! But when he finished rounding the bases and returned to the dugout, his teammates all ignored him. Baseball players, man.
Albert Pujols homered and hit a tiebreaking, two-run double in the ninth inning for his 2,500th hit, leading the Los Angeles Angels over Minnesota 8-5 Saturday night for their third straight win over the Twins.
Albert Pujols is thrilled to have a reason to forget about his first two disappointing seasons with the Los Angeles Angels. His club is on a roll this summer, and he's hoping the ride extends all the way to October.
