  • Fans applaud after Los Angeles Angels Albert Pujols singled for his 3,000th career hit against the Seattle Mariners during the fifth inning of a baseball game Friday

Angels star Albert Pujols joined the 3,000-hit club Friday night on the road in Seattle, spraying a single to right field in the fifth inning.

Pujols reached the milestone in the fifth inning when he singled to right field.

While Pujols pursues more milestones in the months ahead, Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera and Seattle Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano will set their sights on trying to become the next members of the 3,000-hit club.

UK's Domino's Group sales pick pace in Q1

With Pujols' 3,000th hit he also joined Willie Mays, Hank Aaron and Rodriguez as the only players in Major League Baseball history with 3,000 hits and 600 home runs. Richards (4-1) scattered four hits and had eight strikeouts in his first start against Seattle since late 2015. One team that has had a heavy microscope on it is the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Those cheers turned to boos when Ohtani was announced.

Pujols is the second player to collect his 3,000th hit in Seattle after Rafael Palmeiro's double in 2005 at Safeco Field.

Leake (3-3) lost for the third time in four starts.

Few sluggers in baseball history have been more versatile than Pujols, who joins Aaron as the only players with 600 doubles and 600 homers among their 3,000 hits. He threw 5 1/3 innings and matched a season-high with four walks.

Entering Friday, Pujols had hits off 966 pitchers, an impressive list that literally runs from A (Arroyo) to Z (Zambrano). Two-way Japanese sensation Shohei Ohtani's arrival as the Angels' primary DH has put Pujols in the field, where he remains a capable defender.

Mariners: Lefty Marco Gonzales (3-2) goes for his second straight victory.

Mets lose deGrom, fall to sizzling Braves
