A-Rod joins 3,000-hit club

New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez notched his 3,000th career hit on Friday night -- Derek Jeter-style.

Here's how he reached the milestone:

Rodriguez becomes the 29th member of the 3,000-hit club and just the second to reach the milestone in a Yankees uniform. He is only the third player to hit a home run for his 3,000th career hit, joining Jeter and Wade Boggs.

A-Rod now is 11-29 (.379) with five home runs against Justin Verlander.
