Throw your devil horns up, baseball fans. Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez slugged his 666th career home run on Saturday night against the Orioles. He tied the game up at four apiece in the sixth inning, taking starter Bud Norris yard.

Rodriguez also crossed the 2,000 RBI threshold for his career. He’s five hits shy of 3,000 as well. On the season, the 39-year-old Rodriguez is batting .276/.378/.517 with 12 home runs and 32 RBI in 241 plate appearances.

We’ll add video of the home run once it becomes available.
