A Rod 600, OAKLAND, California – [NY POST] The man who said two weeks ago was not considered a home run hitter is three dingers to become the seventh person in history to reach 600.
After hitting two home runs – one with the bases loaded – in the Yankees 6-1 Tuesday night victory over the Athletics at the Coliseum, Alex Rodriguez had 597.
“It’s hard to ignore,”Rodriguez said of about 600.” I’m going to use it as a springboard for many more to come.”Rodriguez says that 600 gets more attention in New York, where people see on the street and cheer.“It feels good,”Rodriguez said.Six hundred is the magic number Rodriguez finally not paid. Receives and 6 million each for 660 Willie Mays, Babe Ruth 714, 755 Hank Aaron 762 Barry Bonds to break Bonds’ record “of all time.
On June 22, Rodriguez seemed likely to limp into the All-Star Game which starts on Sunday. After hitting a homer against the Diamondbacks was nine years old, was hitting .281 and had 48 RBIs. It was his first homer since June 3 and he had missed four games with a problem hip flexor.
After five RBIs on Tuesday night of excellence, which includes his 21 grand slam, Rodriguez had 14 homers and 67 RBIs. Now, it seems that the rest can come at the wrong time for the bacon batter who has jumped in AL MVP talk.
Rodriguez’s 67 RBIs were six behind leader Miguel Cabrera AL 73. And if the hip problem has been the subject of a break, the second half could lead to A-Rod an RBI title.
On 21 slams tie with Manny Ramirez for second in the list of all time. Lou Gehrig is first with 23.
