Alex Rodriguez became the major league’s RBI leader tonight by hitting three home runs in a game for the fourth time in his career. It as his first three-homer game since April 26, 2005, and it lifted the Yankees to an 8-3 win in Kansas City. Rodriguez homered in each of his last three at-bats — Nos. 19, 20 and 21 for the season — with the first home run beginning a three-homer sixth inning for the Yankees. Phil Hughes got the win, his 14th of the season.
