A-Rod takes over 11th on HR list as Yanks roll
Reggie Jackson gave Alex Rodriguez a hug in the visiting clubhouse. A-Rod had just hit his 564th home run, moving past Mr. October into 11th place on the career list.
"Reggie's a close friend and a mentor," Rodriguez said after his two-run drive helped the Yankees beat the Mets 9-1 Friday night in the first Subway Series game at Citi Field. "Reggie is an American icon."
