Earlier this season, Alex Rodriguez pulled even with the Iron Horse, Lou Gehrig, atop baseball's all-time grand slam home run list with he belted the 23rd of his career against the Atlanta Braves.

Tonight, he pulled even with Gehrig again, on baseball's all-time runs scored list, when he scored on a fourth-inning sacrifice fly to give him 1,888 runs in his career, good for ninth in MLB history.

The run, his 879th as a Yankee, also leapfrogged him over Phil Rizzuto into 18th place on the Yankees' all-time list.
