Can’t Win for Losing

Posted By Alex Belth On July 22, 2006 @ 6:56 am In Bronx Banter | Comments Disabled

Alex Rodriguez collected the 2,000th hit of his career last night. It also happened to be a home run–a laser into the left field seats, making Rodriguez the youngest man in history to hit 450 dingers. The shot–a three-run job–also put the Yankees back in the game. However, it was the only offense the Bombers would muster all night as they fell to the Jays, 7-3. It was New York’s third straight loss. They now trail Boston by three-and-a-half. A.J. Burnett was showing off his nasty stuff last night, while Jaret Wright was ineffective. Rodriguez also committed another throwing error (after losing a pop foul in the glare of the roof earlier in the same at bat), which unfortunately marred his historic accomplishment. So it goes right now for Rodriguez.
