So much for that slump, huh?

After snapping a career-worst 0-for-26 stretch Sunday with a two-run blast that propelled him into a tie with Reggie Jackson for 13th on the all-time home run leaderboard, Albert Pujols smacked a third-inning solo shot off Ian Kennedy on Monday for the 564th homer of his illustrious career to eclipse Jackson.

He didn't stop there, though. In the bottom of the fifth inning, the Los Angeles Angels' venerable slugger took Kennedy deep for a second time, becoming the second player ever to record career home runs No. 564 and 565 in the same game, according to ESPN Stats and Info. The other guy to do it? Babe Ruth.
