ATLANTA -- Alex Rodriguez's eighth-inning grand slam tied the Braves at 4-4, and Nick Swisher followed two batters later with a two-run home run to send the New York Yankees to a 6-4 win over the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday. It was the 10th home run for each of them, and it was Rodriguez's first grand slam of the season and the 23rd of his career. They made a winner out of CC Sabathia (8-3), who had thrown at least 100 pitches in each of his last 20 regular-season starts, pitching seven full innings in each of his last four starts. Tuesday was just the fifth start of his 13 this season that he made on four days' rest, and Yankees manager Joe Girardi needed innings from him to give his bullpen a break. Sabathia gave him that but left after seven innings with the Braves up 4-0. The late-inning pyrotechnics spoiled the performance of Braves left-hander Mike Minor, who turned in one of his best efforts of the season, shutting out the Yankees into the eighth inning, al...

New York Yankees 6 — Atlanta Braves 4 Alex Rodriguez begins the comeback rally in tonight’s 6-4 win over the Atlanta Braves.

I have to admit that, when Alex Rodriguez was up with the bases loaded in the 8th inning last night, I expected him to strike out, or otherwise do nothing to get the run(s) in. You can't blame me for this. Everyone knows how badly the Yankees perform with the bases loaded.While I watched his at-bat, the stat popped up on the screen for what seemed like the 100th time: "Alex...

The New York Yankees are visiting the Atlanta Braves tonight on ESPN and in the Top of the 4th as Alex Rodriguez was returning to the dugout after striking out to Tim Hudson there was a young looking man/kid in a blue shirt drinking what I believe to be a beer out of a plastic cup.
The drink seems to be light-brownish (like a beer) and last I remember they don’t serve apple juice...
A lot is made of the grand slam. It’s one of the more exciting plays in an otherwise mostly staid game. It’s the most runs you can score with one swing of the bat. And now Alex Rodriguez has more of them than almost anyone ever with the exception of Lou Gehrig, whom ARod tied [...]
Alex Rodriguez, meet Lou Gehrig.

Rodriguez is now tied with the Iron Horse as the most frequent launchers of bases-loaded home...

in the eighth inning to rally for a 6-4 win over the Atlanta Braves
on Tuesday night.
Last night in Atlanta, Alex Rodriguez hit the 23rd grand slam of his career, typing Lou Gehrig. Even if Nick Swisher‘s two-run homer later the same inning put the Yankees on top for good and was the bigger play according to Win Probability Added (WPA), tying up the game on one swing with his team down four runs is a pretty nice feat for A-Rod, the man who still bears the stigma...
The All-Star Game is less than a month away. Amazing. Seems like it was only yesterday that the season started. Then I look at the 1800+ tater trots that have been tracked and I realize just how long it's really been.
Let's get to those trots!
