Rodriguez hit by pitch, leaves game
NEW YORK (AP)
Rodriguez came to the plate with the bases loaded Sunday and fell behind in the count against reliever Blake Wood when he appeared to take a pitch near his left wrist. Rodriguez stayed down for a moment while manager Joe Girardi and a trainer came out to check on him.
He eventually got to his feet and walked off the field for a pinch runner.
Rodriguez went 2 for 4 with three RBIs, but will have to take his pursuit of 600 home runs on the road. He hit No. 599 in the series opener Thursday night but failed to reach the elite milestone the past three games.
