Alex Rodriguez strikes a two-run home run. The baseball player made a day
“I said I wish I was hitting .330 instead of 3-for-30,” Alex Rodriguez said, according to New York Post.
However, the Yankees’ designated hitter, after being dropped to sixth from No. 3 in the lineup, needed to see just a pitch to become 4-for-31 with two extra base hits-yes, two homers.
“Sometimes, just shaking up a lineup once in a while can help,” manager Joe Girardi responded to that.
“Joe gave me some good advice,” Rodriguez said. “He told me to stop feeling for the baseball and just drive it. That was good advice. I didn’t try to do too much and just put a good swing on it.” He added.
“I thought my rhythm was better,” Rodriguez said. “I only got one hit, but thought my swings were better and my at-bats were a little better. It’s a long year.
Actually, we all know how well he played. He is just so awesome.
“I just thought I saw the ball well. … Work in progress, long season,” Rodriguez said, using two phrases he repeated often after the game. “You just want a consistent approach. You worry about the process, not so much the results and I thought my swings were good. I got a good pitch to hit, popped it up to first. And I got some good swings on my last at-bat. You wish for better results but the process was better. It felt pretty good.”
After that home run, Brian McCann congratulated Alex and praises him.
Then Alex said "I’m glad Mac was at first and not at second,” before asking, “No one got that?”
“Because then he would have been in scoring position,” Rodriguez said, referring to an area of Yankee failure.
Right, it’s all about the process, He said.
Apart from the news, here is his recent personal tweet.
