Angels' Albert Pujols Homers off Brewers RHP Wily Peralta Twice in 1 Inning

Los Angeles Angels star Albert Pujols has never had an at-bat against Milwaukee Brewers right-hander Wily Peralta in a regular-season game, but the veteran hitter apparently has him all figured out.

Pujols led off the bottom of the third inning of Saturday's spring training game with a solo shot to left field. That blast turned out to be a rally-starter, as the Angels would wind up batting around and then some.

The Los Angeles designated hitter got a second at-bat in the inning, producing the same result—a home run. This time, it was a two-run shot that was such a no-doubter that the left fielder didn't even bother giving chase.

Two at-bats, two home runs. Not a bad inning.

Pujols' two homers powered an eight-run inning that saw the Angels take a 10-5 lead. The 36-year-old slugger went 3-for-3 with two home runs and four RBI in a 15-7 victory.
