600 Tracker: Alex Rodriguez vs. Today'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? 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.
