Alex Rodriguez homered and knocked in two runs yesterday to reach 100 RBIs for the 14th time in his career, which sets a new MLB record. He had been tied with Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, and Jimmie Foxx, each of whom had 100 RBIs in 13 seasons.
Rodriguez has reached 100 RBIs in 13 consecutive seasons, tying Gehrig and Foxx for that mark. However, it looks like he’ll fall short of a 13th straight 30-homer, 100-RBI season because he currently has a career-low 22 homers with just 24 games to play.
He’s also on pace to finish with career-worst totals for batting average (.267), on-base percentage (.335), slugging percentage (.491), OPS (.826), runs (59), and steals (4), although Rodriguez has hit .294 with six homers and 15 RBIs in his last 14 games.
