A-Rod reaches 30 HRs for 15th season, ties Aaron for record

The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) Yankees star Alex Rodriguez has reached 30 home runs for the 15th season, tying Hank Aaron's major league record.

Rodriguez hit his 684th career home run in the sixth inning Tuesday night, lifting New York into a 1-all tie with Baltimore.

The 40-year-old Rodriguez hadn't hit the 30-homer mark since 2010. He didn't play last year while serving a season-long drug suspension.

Aaron held the career home run record of 755 before it was broken by Barry Bonds, who finished with 762.

The homer was A-Rod's fourth in five games and boosted his career hit total to 3,056, moving him past Rickey Henderson for 22nd place.
