Alex Rodriguez Hasn’t Homered In 13 Games, His Longest Drought This Year
Do you remember what happened on July 27, 2015? That was the day the New York Yankees’ Alex Rodriguez turned 40 years old, and it was also the day he last hit a home run.
After last night’s 16 inning loss to the Cleveland Indians, A-Rod has matched his season-long streak of 13 games without a homer.
In his past nine games, Rodriguez is batting .278 with zero home runs and two RBIs. But A-Rod isn’t the only one not knocking balls out of the park. Mark Teixeira only has two HRs in the month of August, while Jacoby Ellsbury only has four hits this month.
“There’s going to be peaks and valleys, challenges along the way, and for us it’s all about how we respond is what matters,” said A-Rod.
Before the drought, Rodriguez was on a tear, hitting five home runs in five games.
While he didn’t get a homer last night in Cleveland, A-Rod has hit 10 HRs in Cleveland throughout his career. Maybe tonight or tomorrow will start his bat up again.
