Before "The Machine" descends into the molten steel like the T-800 in "Terminator 2," he's putting finishing touches on a Hall of Fame career and giving fans one last show.

The slugger, finishing out the 2022 season with the Cardinals, is continuing his quest to become the fourth player in MLB history to reach the 700 home run plateau.

He looks to join Barry Bonds (762), Hank Aaron (755) and Babe Ruth (714) as the only sluggers to earn their exclusive club jacket.

Like bananas, home runs come in bunches, and Pujols has put himself in prime position to make a run at 700 over the last month of the season.

Pujols has hit six home runs in his last seven games (through Aug. 22), and with 693 home runs and 39 games left to play this year, he's got a shot.

Helping Pujols in his quest for 700 is his torrid home run rate (HR/PA), which sits at 6.1 percent for the 2022 season.

He's gotten extremely hot in August, with seven home runs in 40 plate appearances, that number sits at 17.5 percent.

There's still a good chance that Pujols can reach the 700 home run mark this season.

If Pujols plays in all of St. Louis' remaining games, then he has a 41.6 percent chance to reach the 700 home run mark, and a 14.2 percent chance to finish with exactly 700 home runs.
