New York Yankees: A-Rod Breaks Slump With Two-Run Shot (Video)

New York Yankees’ designated hitter, Alex Rodriguez, broke out of his frustrating slump in the most appropriate fashion. 

The New York Yankees desperately needed some sort of boost, and Alex Rodriguez thankfully provided that boost.

Coming into today’s game against the Seattle Mariners, A-Rod was coming off a game in which he went 0-for-5 with three strikeouts which lowering his batting average to .100.

He was also stuck in the mud as he was 0-for-19 resulting in a move to the number six hole in the lineup. That move to the six spot looks like a genius move by manager Joe Girardi.

In the bottom of the second inning with the Yankees trailing 1-0, Rodriguez turned on a Hisashi Iwakuma fastball and sent it into the seats in left.

It was not only a much-needed boost for the 40-year old slugger, but it gave the Yankees, who are currently experiencing a four-game losing streak, a 2-1 lead.

Two of A-Rod’s four hits of 2016 have come via the long ball.
