Alex Rodriguez hit his 500th home run against Kyle Davies and the Royals. 99 home runs later and he had a chance to repeat history.
That time never came as A-Rod went 1-for-4 and Davies was awarded the 7-4 victory.
The Royals jumped out to a 6-0 lead and appeared to be cruising until the Yankees put on a mini-run scoring two runs in both the fourth and fifth inning. Robinson Tejeda eventually came in and pitched two key scoreless innings.
Here are a few of the Royals top performers:
- Scott Podsednik: 3-for-5 with one RBI
Billy Butler: 1-for-4 with one RBI
- Jose Guillen: 1-for-3 with two RBIs (home run)
- Rick Ankiel: 1-for-4 with two RBIs
