A-Rod posts another historic homer


NEW YORK: Drug-tainted New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez belted another milestone home run on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila), becoming the American League’s all-time leader in runs batted in. Rodriguez’s three-run shot off Chris Young helped the Yankees to a 4-2 victory over Kansas City and took his career RBI total to 1,995—two more than Yankees legend Lou Gehrig and alone in third place on Major League Baseball’s all-time list. Rodriguez had already moved past Babe Ruth, who is credited with 1,992 career runs-batted-in, a tally that is somewhat short since the stat wasn’t officially kept until 1920—six years after Ruth started playing.
