A-Rod goes moon

Alex Rodriguez just hit Clay Buchholz's first pitch of the fifth inning so high and far it probably burned up on re-entry. The Yankees' fourth solo HR of the day sailed over the left-field bleachers and out into the street to increase the lead to 5-1. It was also HR No. 631 for A-Rod, moving him ahead of Ken Griffey Jr. for sole possession of fifth place on the all-time list, behind Barry Bonds, Hank Aaron, Babe Ruth and Willie Mays.
