KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Alex Rodriguez moved within one of the
500 home run club by swatting his 35th homer of the season in the
New York Yankees' 7-to-1 win over Kansas City.
Rodriguez hit his 499th homer and Melky Cabrera and Hideki
Matsui also went deep as the Yankees won their sixth in a row. The
Yanks moved within six and a-half games of Boston. That's as close
as they've been to the lead in two and a-half months.
Mike Mussina is 5-and-7 with the win. Gil Meche is 7-and-7 with
the loss.
Kansas City's starter Thursday is Jorge De La Rosa, who gave up
A-Rod's 400th homer two years ago.
