New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez sits alone in fourth place on MLB’s all-time home run list after hitting the 661st round-tripper of his career Thursday night in the Bronx. Rodriguez launched a changeup from Baltimore Orioles starter Chris Tillman to center field for his seventh home run of the season.
Rodriguez is 53 home runs away from catching Babe Ruth for the third-most all-time. Hank Aaron is second on the all-time list with 755. Barry Bonds holds the record with 762.
A-Rod nearly had his 661st in the first inning, before center fielder Adam Jones scaled the wall and robbed him of a home run.
