ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - 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 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.
Rodriguez's second-inning solo shot off Casey Fossum (2-1) was the 477th of his career and extended his hitting streak to 18 games to start this season and 23 in a row dating to September. His two-run shot off Al Reyes in the ninth gave him 34 RBIs and tied the mark for homers in April set by Albert Pujols in 2006.
