Has not faced Brad Mills

 

Great! Despite going on a seven-game road trip, Alex Rodriguez still has an opportunity to hit No. 600 at home. And against a team he has a lot of experience tonight: there's only three pitchers he hasn't hit a homer off of in their bullpen. He has great career statistics against important relievers such as Camp, Downs, and Frasor, although that might be evened out by the whole 2-18 thing against Brian Tallet. (That's a .111 average in 18 at-bats. That's awful.) Now can we please get this over already?
