Angels' Pujols Ends Longest HR Drought of Career
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Albert Pujols has hit his first regular-season home run since joining the Los Angeles Angels, ending the longest drought of his 12-year career after 33 games and 139 at-bats.

Pujols' two-run shot into the left-field bullpen Sunday came in the fifth inning against Toronto's Drew Hutchison.

Pujols was playing his 28th game for the Angels since leaving St. Louis and signing a $240 million, 10-year contract.

The three-time NL MVP hit seven home runs in spring training. His regular-season drought began last year with the Cardinals.
