Albert Pujols snapped his home run drought with a pair of solo shots off David Price in the Angels' 6-2 victory over the Rays on Sunday.

Pujols went 12 straight games without a homer, and he hadn't had a multi-RBI day since hitting his 499th and 500th career homers back on April 22. Health seems to have played a role in his slump, and while today provides some hope for the future, he still doesn't appear to be quite 100 percent with his lower body.
