A-Rod's Historic Homer Helps Lead Bombers Past Halos 14-9

He will never even come close to Lou Gehrig's consecutive games played streak, a MLB record that stood for over half a century, until it was broken in the mid 1990's by Baltimore's Cal Ripken. He will probably never be as beloved, by the fans from the Bronx, or make a speech that still almost 70 years later raises goose bumps when you hear it("Today, I am the luckiest man, on the face of the earth....") However there is a milestone that the "Iron Horse" set that New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez will very shortly takeover, 22nd place on the MLB career home run list. The man known as A-Rod coming back on Friday night after missing a day due to a tight left hamstring hit his MLB leading 29TH long ball of the season, helping the Bronx Bombers win a slug fest over the LA Angels 14-9. The round tripper was Rodriguez 493rd of his career putting him into a three way tie with Fred McGriff, and Gehrig for 22nd place on the career list. Rodriguez, said after the game that the hammy was still giving him some discomfort, but he thought he could work his way through it.
