A-Rod Hit No. 600
Exactly 3 years after Alex Rodriguez hit home run number 500 of his career, he hit home run number 600. In the bottom of the first, 2 outs, 1 man on, A-Rod blasted one off pitcher Shaun Marcum into center field. A-Rod said after the game that "it was a relief just to put it behind me". A-Rods career will always have an asterisk next to it because of the accusations of steroid abuse. But for right now, I think everyone should let A-Rod have his moment. He is the youngest player ever to 600 home runs.
