Watch Albert Pujols end MLB's longest game this year with a walk-off homer

Albert Pujols' stats may be in decline, but the Cardinals' former king came through for the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday night — big time.

The team was more than six-and-a-half hours and 19 innings into a game against the Boston Red Sox when Pujols stepped to the plate and delivered a leadoff home run to end the marathon with a 5-4 Angels' win. Watch the shot, along with a very happy — and relieved — celebration on the Angels' side (the Red Sox aren't quite so thrilled) in the video, below. --Sarah Eberspacher
