A-Rod Comes Through in the Clutch Again [David Stefanini]

Alex Rodriguez, once again, has come through in the biggest of situations. With nobody on base with 2 outs in the 9th inning, A-Rod hits the game winning home-run.

Coming into this season, all I heard about was how A-Rod hits all of his homers in the first 7 innings. Well where are those critics now?

It is simply amazing when you consider the turnaround he has pulled from last season to this season. What more can we say? He is great and we are lucky to watch a performance such as this.

In April A-Rod had two walk off home-runs. In May he cooled off drastically (his batting average fell all the way to 300). Now in June, A-Rod looks to be back in full April mode.

Still with this win the Yankees are 12.5 games behind Boston. Their only shot is to go after the wild card. And A-Rod may be able to carry them there on his back.
