 And sent a 427-foot blast out to left field. On Friday, the two-run homer tied the game 4-4.

 In anticipation, the fans were already standing when Pujols circled the bases to a thunderous applause.

 Actually, I believed that my last one had also vanished, but you people are aware of how difficult this location is."

 In 12 additional ballparks, the ball would have been out, according to ESPN Stats and Information.
