Alex Rodriguez hit his first HR in a month, and the Yanks made it back to .500 with a 2-1 win over Baltimore Monday night.
It seems like the Yanks are like one of those sinker lines on a fishing pole. They bob up to .500, sink down, then bob up again.
A-Rod got his 9th HR of the year (696* career) in the second inning to put the Yanks up 1-0. Jonathan Schoop tied it up in the third with a HR for Baltimore.
The Yanks got the tiebreaking and winning run in the bottom of the third. Gardner singled, went to third on a single by Beltran and scored on a SF by McCann.
Nova went six, then it was no-Runs DMC time.
