A-Rod passes Mays on HR list in Yanks’ win
The Yankees star hit a liner off Chris Tillman into a secure area just to the left of Monument Park in center field in the third inning to give New York a 3-2 lead. A-Rod sent a soaring shot in the first that Delmon Young caught by reaching over the top of the wall in right field for a sacrifice fly.
The slugger pumped his fist as he rounded first base, and fans gave Rodriguez a standing ovation as he was greeted warmly in the dugout by his teammates.
Next up for Rodriguez: Babe Ruth at 714 home runs.
