New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez moved into fifth-place on the all time home runs list on Friday with a Deep blast during the Yankees-Red Sox game at Fenway Park.
Rodriguez passed former teammate and mentor Ken Griffey Jr. with a solo home run in the fifth inning off Red Sox pitcher Clay Bucholz. This is his second home run of the season and number 631 for his career. Rodriguez hit his first home run of the season on the Yankees home opener April 13.
Rodriguez and Griffey played together on the Seattle Mariners from 1994-1999.
Rodriguez trails Barry Bonds, Hank Aaron, Babe Ruth and Willie Mays, who is only 29 home runs away for the all-time list.
