600 Tracker: Alex Rodriguez vs. Tonight's Opponents

Until Alex Rodriguez hits hits 600 home runs, we'll be his batter vs. pitcher history against his opposition for the night. Tonight? Brian Bannister and the Kansas City Royals

Career vs. the Royals: 41 Home Runs

Career at Yankee Stadium: 124 Home Runs

Vs. Brian Bannister, tonight's starter: 4-7, 3 HRs, 6 RBI, 3 BB's, 3 K's

Royals Bullpen

Vs. Rob Tejeda: 5-11, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K

Vs. Joakim Soria: 2-3, 1 K

Vs. Blake Wood: 1-1, 1 RBI 

Has not faced Kyle Farnsworth, Dusty Hughes, Victor Marte, or Kanakoa Texeira.

Basically, tonight would be a great night for A-Rod to enter the 600 club: he's really owned Brian Bannister historically. He doesn't have much history against the Royals bullpen - he was injured last time the Royals came to New York in 2009 - and the one guy he does, Tejeda, gave up his 599th home run yesterday, so he probably won't be in there against Rodriguez anytime soon.
