600 Tracker: Alex Rodriguez vs. Today's Opponents

Until Alex Rodriguez hits hits 600 home runs, we'll be baseballreference.com-ing his batter vs. pitcher history against his opposition for the night. Tonight? Kyle Davies and the Kansas City Royals

Career vs. the Royals: 41 Home Runs

Career at Yankee Stadium: 124 Home Runs

Vs. Kyle Davies, today's Royals starter: 3-4, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 1 BB

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 

Vs. Kanakoa Texeira: 0-1

Vs. Victor Marte: 1-1

Has not faced Kyle Farnsworth or Dusty Hughes

 


Conclusion: Another day where Rodriguez faces a really favorable group of pitchers. For the second straight day, A-Rod faces a starter against whom he boasts a batting average above .500 and against whom he has already hit a home run in his career. Not to mention that after going 1-2 last night against the Royals bullpen, he's now 9-17 with a home run in his career against Royals relievers. 

Also, although he has no career experience against Farnsworth, as a Yankees fan, I guarantee you that if he faces the hard-throwing righty, a home run will occur. There are few things you can guarantee in life, but Kyle Farnsworth giving up home runs is one of them.
