 St. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -Alex Rodriguez became the first player in major league history to hit 14 homers in the first 18 games of a season and tied the record for April homers, connecting in the second and ninth innings of the New York Yankees' 10-8 loss to Tampa Bay Devil Rays on Monday night.
Rodriguez hit a solo homer off Casey Fossum in the second inning, then hit a two-run drive against Al Reyes in the ninth.
A-Rod matched the record for April homers set by Albert Pujols last year. Rodriguez also leads the majors with 34 RBIs.
