A-Rod passes Mays for 4th on HR list

Alex Rodriguez passed Willie Mays for fourth place on the career home run list, connecting for No. 661 on Thursday.

The New York Yankees star hit a line drive off Baltimore pitcher Chris Tillman just to the left of Yankee Stadium’s Monument Park in the third inning. “A-Rod” almost reached the milestone in the first inning but was robbed by Delmon Young reaching over the top of the wall in right field to take the catch. Next up for Rodriguez on the all-time list is Babe Ruth at 714 home runs.
