Is there any doubt that Alex Rodriguez has had a great year coming off his year suspension for banned substances? The Yankees designated hitter came into last night’s game versus the Minnesota Twins with a .271 batting average, 20 home runs and 54 runs batted in on the season. In the game, A-Rod hit not one, not two, but three home runs powering the Yankees to a 8-5 win.
This three home run game for Rodriguez might’ve been his most impressive yet, as the 39-year-old is set to turn 40 years old on Monday. It was the fifth three home run game of his career, which also gave him three as a member of the Yankees. That only trails Lou Gehrig for the most in Yankees regular season history, as he tied Joe DiMaggio’s total of three with the game. He also became the fifth oldest player to have a three home run game. You can see all three of his shots down below.
Rodriguez is now batting .277 on the season with 23 home runs and 58 runs batted in through 90 games for the Yankees this season.
