St. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Alex Rodriguez became the first player in major league history to hit 13 homers in the first 18 games of a season, connecting off Casey Fossum in the second inning of Monday night game between the New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Devil Rays.
Rodriguez lined a 2-2 pitch into the left field stands to tie the AL record for home runs in April and pull within one of the major league record set by Albert Pujols in 2006. He's the first Yankee to have 13 homers and 32 RBIs in a calendar month since Roger Maris in July 1961.
Ken Griffey Jr. hit 13 homers for Seattle in April 1997.
