Two more homers by Alex Rodriguez couldn't pull the New York Yankees out of a tailspin.

A-Rod tied the major league record for home runs in April, hitting his 13th and 14th of the season in a 10-8 loss to the host Tampa Bay Devil Rays last night.

Rocco Baldelli and B.J. Upton offset the Yankees star by combining to drive in seven runs for Tampa Bay. Baldelli hit a three-run homer off Kei Igawa (1-1) in the second inning. Upton lined a solo shot off the leftfield foul pole in the fourth for a 5-3 lead, then added a three-run double off reliever Luis Vizcaino to finish with a career-high four RBI.
