Alex Rodriguez had a couple of doubles and drove in a run in the Yankees opening series against the Red Sox, but he ultimately hit just .133 during those first three games.
“We won two out of three and (Mark Teixeira) and I really didn’t do much to help out,” Rodriguez said at the time.
In the 10 games sense, Teixeira has stayed pretty cold, but Rodriguez has gotten on a role. He’s hit .387 since the Red Sox series, driving in nine runs and scoring nine more. He’s walked 11 times, and he’s homered twice in the past three games.
Last night, Rodriguez positively crushed a ball into the stands in left center. It takes a quite a bit for a press box to collectively react, but last night’s home run drew some variation of “Wow” from just about everyone sitting around me.
Here’s Rodriguez talking after the game.
