A-Rod Hits #599 As The Yankees Roll On
NEW YORK (AP) – Alex Rodriguez hit his 599th home run, Derek
Jeter had an inside-the-park shot and the New York Yankees beat the
Kansas City Royals 10-4 Thursday on another strange night in the
Jorge Posada had a go-ahead double and a bizarre throwing error
that cost New York a run and put Yuniesky Betancourt on second
after striking out. But the Yankees rebounded with enough offense
to help CC Sabathia (13-3) win his ninth straight decision.
Rodriguez hit a solo homer to right field in the seventh inning,
putting New York ahead 6-4 and leaving him one shy of becoming the
seventh major league player to reach 600.
