A-Rod Stuck On #499

Alex Rodriguez remained stuck at 499 career homers, going 0-for-4 in the New York Yankees' 8-1 rout of the Chicago White Sox. That matches the longest hitless streak of his big league career at 21 at-bats.

Jorge Posada homered twice. Derek Jeter, Robinson Cano and Shelley Duncan also connected to give the Yankees 13 home runs in two games. That ties the team record for a two-game span set in 1939.

Rodriguez is hitless since he went deep at Kansas City last Wednesday. The 30-year-old Rodriguez would be the youngest player
with 500 homers.

Andy Pettitte evened his mark at 7-and-7. He's 3-and-1 in his last six starts, allowing one run and six hits in seven innings as New York won its third in a row.
