A-Rod’s Slam Ties Lou Gehrig record

June 12, 2012 – Atlanta, GA

The New York Yankees’s Alex Rodriguez blasted a laser over the left field wall for his 23rd grand slam, tying him with Yankee legend Lou Gehrig. Gehrig hit his last grand slam on August 20, 1938, setting a Major League record that has not been matched until today.

The A-bomb, off Atlanta Braves reliever Jonny Venters, was Rodriguez’s 10th homer of the season and 639th overall. It sparked a rally after Braves starter Mike Minor held the Yankees to just three singles and a double with no runs.

Minor was in place for a win until Rodriguez’s blast tied the game and Nick Swisher’s two-run homer two batters later put the Yankees ahead for good, 6-4. Just like that, the Yankees roared from scoreless to winning the game, giving CC Sabathia his eighth victory.

No doubt he would relish this blast in the off-season while golfing, reliving that shot over and over again. All this while taking more shots on the green after using TeeOff.com promo codes, which give him a wide variety of links to play on. Of course, he does not have to worry about money but he should try these out anyway since there is no down side to doing so.
