In the 6th inning of Friday's game versus Cincinnati, Albert Pujols came up with Nolan Arenado on 1st base with the Cardinals trailing 4 to 2. One swing later, the game was tied and Albert was only 2 home runs from the coveted 700 mark.

The St. Louis Cardinals play the Cincinnati Reds in a doubleheader on Saturday and Albert Pujols is scheduled to start as the Reds are planning to start a left-handed pitcher. Don't be surprised if Albert gets even closer to (if not surpasses) 700 this weekend.

Stay tuned.
