Congrats to A-Rod!
I can't imagine many will read this due to the title of the post and the player mentioned, but a congratulations goes out to Alex Rodriguez for tying Lou Gehrig for the career grand slams record. Each went deep with bases loaded 23 times, two more than Manny Ramirez.
The timing of the HR was much needed as well. With the Yanks down 4-0 after mustering nothing off of Mike Minor, Jonny Venters was brought in. He promptly loaded the bases, and Alex hit a 3-2 laser beam to left. The ball couldn't have been much more than 20 feet high the entire way and snuck over the fence into a Yankee fan's hat.
Congrats to A-Rod on this historic blast, and I look forward to seeing #24.
