A-Rod hitless in Double-A rehab game

Alex Rodriguez went 0-for-3 with a sacrifice fly in his second

rehab game with Double-A Trenton, playing seven innings in the

Thunder’s game against the Reading Fightin Phils on Tuesday

night.

His status for Wednesday’s game in Reading has not been

announced.

The Yankees third baseman flew out three times and grounded out

once.

The three-time American League MVP started by lining out sharply

to left. He hit the ball squarely in his second at-bat, driving it

to deep center field for a sacrifice fly that gave Trenton a 2-1

lead.

He was first-pitch swinging in his third at-bat and was out in

front on a changeup, lofting it into center field. He grounded to

third in his final plate appearance.

Tuesday marked Rodriguez’s 10th rehab game since July 2.
