Alex Rodriguez hits 21st career slam
Alex Rodriguez has tied Manny Ramirez for second place on the
career list with his 21st grand slam.
Rodriguez connected in the third inning against Oakland All-Star
Trevor Cahill on Tuesday night. It was Rodriguez’s third slam of
the season. He needs two more to tie Hall of Famer Lou Gehrig for
the most ever.
The slam was the major league-leading ninth of the season for
the Yankees. That’s one shy of the franchise record set in
Rodriguez added a solo homer in the sixth inning for his 55th
career multihomer game. He has 597 home runs.
