Before tonight's game, Albert Pujols had played in 1,851 regular season games and 74 postseason games. In exactly zero -- 0 -- of those games had Albert Pujols struck out three times against the same pitcher.

Tonight, Albert Pujols faced Felix Hernandez three times.

1st inning: Albert Pujols struck out swinging.
3rd inning: Albert Pujols struck out swinging.
5th inning: Albert Pujols struck out looking.

Hat tip to Alex Saul for being the first I saw to point it out.
