KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -The Alex Rodriguez home run onslaught continued on Sunday when the Yankees third baseman went deep for the seventh time in five games, pumping his major league-leading total to 52.
The two-run shot in the first inning off Zack Greinke gave A-Rod 50 homers from the third base position, extending his major league record, and raised his major league-leading RBI count to 140. He's hit two home runs in games twice since last Wednesday, including Saturday night.
It was the third time he's homered in five straight games.
``The difference as far as I'm concerned with Alex is how much fun he's having playing the game,'' Yankees manager Joe Torre said Sunday as the Yankees got ready to play. ``Even during the game. This is a little bit of a difference from last year where he seemed to be internalizing a lot. But now he just seems to be a lot freer.''
