A-Rod Goes Deep Yankees Win Big Beat K.C. 7-1

The New York Yankees pulled to within 6.5 games of Eastern Division leading Boston Wednesday night as they smacked around the Kansas City Royals 7-1. It was the sixth straight win for the Bombers and they have now won 11 out of the their last 13 games. Hideki Matsui and Melki Cabrera each went deep for the Yankees, but the big shot of the night was New York third baseman's Alex Rodriguez career homer number 499. A-Rod who turns 32 on Friday would be the youngest player to get to the 500 mark. Jimmie Foxx who was 32 years 338 days currently is the youngest MLB player to attain the goal. Rodriguez is looking to become the 22 player in MLB history to reach 500 homers, and the second this year as Frank Thomas did it earlier this season.
