It was a vintage A-Rod moment.
Alex Rodriguez strode to the plate in the third inning, his at-bat soundtracked by a mixture of loud applause and loud-enough derisive comments from the PNC Field crowd. Ever the polarizing figure . . . even in a Triple-A rehab stint.
Then Rodriguez delivered.
He launched a 1-and-2 offering over the right-centerfield wall for a two-run homer and was showered with cheers.
It was his second rehab home run. His first at Triple-A. After the game Rodriguez said he felt “pretty good.” He has three rehab games to go. And, as reported yesterday, is expected to rejoin the Yankees on Monday.
