Albert Pujols went yard for the 28th time this season the Angels dropped an 8-4 decision to the A's on Monday.

It was the veteran's second homer in the last three games. Along with the 28 homers, Pujols has knocked in 104 -- the 12th time he's exceeded 100 RBI in 14 seasons -- and slashed .274/.328/.472. He's on pace for 107 RBI, which would be his highest total since 2010.
