A little too juicy for me, so not as much as it might have been...
Alex Rodriguez moved to within one home run of a plateau inhabited by only six other players in baseball history, the 600 Club, Thursday night when he belted No. 599 off Kansas City Royals reliever Robinson Tejeda in the seventh inning at Yankee Stadium.
Rodriguez's blast, his 16th of the season, was a solo shot into the lower right-field seats on an 0-2 pitch that gave the Yankees a 6-4 lead en route to a 10-4 win. The blast moved him to seventh on the all-time home run list, behind Sammy Sosa, Ken Griffey Jr., Willie Mays, Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron and Barry Bonds.
