Albert Pujols was named National League MVP on Tuesday after a unanimous vote. He’s the first player to win back-to-back awards since Barry Bonds won four straight from 2001-04.

 

Pujols received 32 first-place votes and 448 points. Florida’s Hanley Ramirez was second with 233 points, and Phillies slugger Ryan Howard finished third with 217 points.

 

Pujols led the majors in home runs (47), runs (124), slugging percentage (.658) and intentional walks (44).

 

Joe Mauer won the American League award earlier this week.
