ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV) - Cardinals legend Albert Pujols is the holder of a home run record.

Monday night, he hit a home run off Wentzville native Ross Detwiler in Cincinnati. It was not only the 694th home run of Pujols’ career, but it also marked another milestone. Detwiler is the 450th different pitcher Pujols has homered off of, a new MLB record. The mark was previously held by Barry Bonds.

Pujols is now only two home runs behind Alex Rodriguez, who is 4th on the all-time list.
