A-Rod hits two homers, adds go-ahead RBI in Yankees' victory
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Alex Rodriguez carried the Yankees Friday in Tampa, hitting two home runs and delivering the go-ahead RBI single in the team's win.

Rodriguez's first homer traveled 471 feet, the furthest homer hit this season.

He drove in four runs overall.

"Without Alex we're going to lose that ball game," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said.

The two-homer game was Rodriguez's first since May 23, 2012.

Yankees' Alex Rodriguez slugs home run in Wednesday's loss
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Yankees designated hitter Alex Rodriguez went 2 for 3 with a walk and a solo home run in his team's 7-5 loss to the Orioles Wednesday.

It's just the second multihit game of the season for Rodriguez, who smacked his home run off Baltimore starter Bud Norris in the fourth inning.

"That one felt amazing off the bat," Rodriguez said after the game, per MLB.com. "We've shown flashes of good things in all four facets of our game. The key for us is to collectively get them all working in the same direction, get them in sync. Once we do that we can get on a roll."

He's 8 for 28 with two home runs and seven RBI in nine games while seeing time at first base, third base and designated hitter. He's four home runs from tying Willie Mays on the all-time list.

Yankees' Jeff Pentland on A-Rod: 'He believes he can hit'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez has gotten off to a fairly decent start in 2015 after sitting out in 2014 due to a season-long suspension for using performance-enhancing drugs. Rodriguez is batting just .240, but he has a .345 on-base percentage, .440 slugging percentage, three extra-base hits and six RBI in eight games.

"He believes he can hit," hitting coach Jeff Pentland said of what has impressed him about Rodriguez, per NJ.com. "More than anything else, he had something to prove in spring training, and he had something to prove to his teammates. More than anything else, to his teammates.

"He cares very much what other players around him think. I think he's passed the test. He's very thorough. He's very knowledgeable. Everything that comes out of his mouth about hitting is pretty much right on."

One weakness in Rodriguez's offensive game is his 11 strikeouts.

"But it's not on fastballs," Pentland said. "When you mature, I think there's always a concern of whether you can catch up to the fastball. That has not been an issue and I have told him that. I told him, I said, 'Look, these pitchers are giving you a heck of a lot of respect. I see them pitching around you a lot of the time. You need to keep your plate discipline and understand that there are certain at-bats, they're not going to want anything to do with you.'"

Yankees' Brett Gardner, Alex Rodriguez out of lineup Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner and designated hitter Alex Rodriguez are not in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Orioles.

Gardner is out of the lineup as expected after getting hit on the wrist by a pitch Monday. While he may be able to pinch run or serve as a defensive replacement Tuesday, he's unlikely to bat, the New York Daily News reports. Manager Joe Girardi hopes Gardner's ready to return to the starting lineup by Friday.

Rodriguez made his first start at third base Monday. With both players sidelined, Garrett Jones will bat sixth and DH, and Chris Young will bat seventh and man left field.

"You can't forget (that) it’s a long season," Joe Girardi said, per NJ.com. "When he's going good, you're going to want to keep him in there every day. That's how your guys get fatigued and that's how they end up injuring something in their leg. I have to guard against that. That's why I thought today was a great day to give him off."

The Yankees are underdogs (+110) against the Orioles Tuesday, per VegasInsider.com.
