A-Rod climbs some career ladders, too
Not to be outdone by teammate Derek Jeter, who passed Willie Mays into 10th place on the all-time hits list, Alex Rodriguez moved up some career lists when he homered with Jeter aboard in the eighth inning Friday night.
The run A-Rod scored on his 18th home run of the season and 447th of his career was his 1,889th, which pushed him past Lou Gehrig into ninth place on the all-time list. Next up in eighth place is Stan Musial at 1,949.
It was also Rodriguez’s 2,884th hit, which tied him with Zack Wheat for 37th place, 27 slots behind Jeter.
