Rodriguez Ends Night One Homer Short of 600

An inning after hitting his 599th career home run, Alex Rodriguez came up again with a chance for 600.

With the crowd on its feet, Rodriguez drove a 2-2 pitch to deep right center field for a run-scoring double and cap a 3 for 5, four RBI night in the Yankees’ 10-4 victory.

Rodriguez goes for No. 600 on Friday night against Kansas City right hander Brian Bannister.

The chances are good for history to be made Friday: Rodriguez has three home runs in seven career at bats against Bannister.
