On Saturday afternoon, Alex Rodriguez failed to hit his 600th career home run against the Royals in Yankee Stadium. The match-up against Royals starter Kyle Davies was a favorable one for A-Rod, as he was 3-for-4 with a home run in his past appearances vs. Davies, but he'll need to wait at least one more day.
The Yankees fell to the Royals, 7-4. With two outs in the bottom of the ninth, there was potential for a dramatic finish, as a hit for Mark Teixeira would have put Rodriguez, the winning run, at the plate. Unfortunately for the Yankees, Teixeira was ruled out by a controversial call at first base.
At 1:05 Eastern on Sunday, the Yankees will play the third of a four-game series against the Royals, who have not yet announced their starting pitcher.
