Triple Crown Watch: Albert Pujols vs. Joey Votto

Aug 26, 2010, 1:28 PM EDT

Last night Albert Pujols went 0-for-4 in a loss to the Pirates while Joey Votto went 4-for-7 with two homers and four RBIs in a wild extra-inning win over the Giants, so here’s how the Triple Crown picture looks right now:

BATTING AVERAGE
JOEY VOTTO        .326
Carlos Gonzalez   .320
ALBERT PUJOLS     .319
HOME RUNS
ALBERT PUJOLS      33
JOEY VOTTO         31
Adam Dunn          31
RUNS BATTED IN
ALBERT PUJOLS      92
JOEY VOTTO         90
Carlos Gonzalez    84

As noted earlier this week, Omar Infante still lurks as a possible roadblock to the batting title for Pujols or Votto. After going 1-for-5 with a homer last night Infante is now hitting .347 and he’s inching closer to the plate appearances needed to qualify.

    Omar only needs 155 more PAs.

    All three of these guys would be getting killed in the AL

    Two I mean

    Albert Pujols Career Interleague numbers:
    .347/.439/.635 1.074 OPS in 137 games or just shy of a full season.
    But don’t let facts get in the way of your bias.
