Haute 100 NY Update: Alex Rodriguez Ties Lou Gehrig’s Grand Slam Record

New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez hit his 23rd grand slam in the Bronx Bombers’ 6-4 victory over the Atlanta Braves at Turner Field last night. That number vaulted him to number one on the all-time grand slam list, a perch he shares with Yankees legend Lou Gehrig. The feat occurred along a comeback trail for A-Rod, who struggled at the start of the season. It also secured the top spot in the American League East for the Yanks, who had not exclusively led the division since April 21. A jubilant Rodriguez tipped his hat to the team’s history after making his own, saying, “this game is very, very difficult and if you’re not going to enjoy these great moments, then it’s not any fun. Lou Gehrig was not only one of the all-time greats, but he was one of ours, a Yankee.”
