Alex Rodriguez hits his second rehab home run

Yesterday the New York Daily News continued its quixotic quest to put A-Rod into some phony insurance fraud retirement. Meanwhile, in Scranton, Alex Rodriguez was busy hitting a home run:

It was a vintage A-Rod moment.

Alex Rodriguez strode to the plate in the third inning, his at-bat soundtracked by a mixture of loud applause and loud-enough derisive comments from the PNC Field crowd. Ever the polarizing figure . . . even in a Triple-A rehab stint.

Then Rodriguez delivered.

He launched a 1-and-2 offering over the right-centerfield wall for a two-run homer and was showered with cheers.

It was his second rehab home run. His first at Triple-A.  After the game Rodriguez said he felt “pretty good.” He has three rehab games to go. And, as reported yesterday, is expected to rejoin the Yankees on Monday.
