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.
