Last Thursday Alex Rodriguez hit his 599th career home run. Now, 10 days later he is waiting to knock his 600th one out of the park. Concerning to many fans, A-Rod is taking longer to reach the 600 mark than any of the six other players to do so. However, as long as the Yankees keep winning, Rodriguez is not worried about it.
Tonight at the Tropicana Field the Tampa Bay Rays will send Matt Garza to the mound to face off against Rodriguez and the Yankees. This will be the first time the Rays have sent him out against the Yankees since his no-hitter. With a 3.26 ERA, Garza is 1-3 lifetime against the Yankees
Out of nine meetings with Tampa Bay, the Yankees have one four of the games. Tonight the Yankees are hoping to beat the Rays in the battle for AL East dominance, and A-Rod may be looking for his 600th career home run. When Rodriguez joins the six other members of the 600-homer club, he will be the youngest player ever to reach that achievement.
The New York Yankees will play their next game at the Tropicana Field in Florida against the Tampa Bay Rays tonight.
