A-Rod Stuck At 599 As Royals Win

NEW YORK (AP) – Jose Guillen homered and drove in two runs, Rick

Ankiel also had a pair of RBIs and the Kansas City Royals pounded

spot starter Sergio Mitre during a 7-4 victory over the New York

Yankees on Saturday.

Kyle Davies (5-6) served up a pair of home runs to Mark Teixeira

and another to Jorge Posada, but otherwise held the hot-hitting

Yankees in check on a sweltering afternoon in the Bronx. Davies

survived 5 1-3 innings to win for the first time since May 28.

Alex Rodriguez was 1 for 4 and remained stuck on 599 home runs

for the second straight day. The Yankees slugger flew out in the

first, singled in the fourth and grounded out in the fifth against

Davies, who was responsible for Rodriguez's 500th home run on Aug.

4, 2007.
