A-Rod Stat Tracker

14 – The number of homeruns hit by the New York Yankees Alex Rodriguez, hitting two more shots in a losing effort, as the Yankees (8-10) fell to the Tampa Bay Devil Rays (8-11) Monday 10-8. A-Rod has hit safely in all 18 games, becoming just the third major league player since 1980 to do so. Consequently, he leads the league with a .400 BA and 14 homeruns and 34 RBI. He needs just one more homerun to surpass Albert Pujols‘ record of 14 homers in the month of April, and he has reached 14 quicker than anyone, beating Pujols’ effort last year by a whopping six games. The next record he will be looking to break is Sammy Sosa‘s record for most homers in any month with 20. The Yankees have six games left in the month.
