Alex Rodriguez Ends Tuesday Still Stuck At 599 Home Runs

Josh Tomlin. You know him? Me neither. But he was good enough to pitch into the eighth inning against the Yankees in his Major League debut, allowing one run while striking out two in 7+. And A-Rod? There was no history made on his 35th birthday. His performance:

-groundout 

-groundout

-fly out to deep right

-groundout

Alex's deep fly out came down just shy of the track. He's now 5-20 in five games since hitting dinger #599, and if he intends to break through on Wednesday, he'll have to try to do it against Fausto Carmona, a hard-throwing sinkerballer who's only allowed four homers to righties in 2010, and 25 homers to righties over his career, spanning 1321 plate appearances. In other words, it's not going to be easy. Of course, there's always the bullpen.
