Last night, Alex Rogriguez homered for his third straight game, putting his season total to 5; tops in the MLB.
A-Rod’s homer made him the first player ever in team history to hit 5 homeruns in the first six games.
Most homeruns in Yankees history through the first six games:
2007 Alex Rogriguez 5
1961 Mickey Mantle 4
1957 Moose Skowron 4
1956 Mickey Mantle 4
1932 Babe Ruth 4
Six games into A-Rod’s 4th season with the Yankees, I think its safe to say A-rod has finally earned his stripes.
