NEW YORK — Alex Rodriguez has passed Willie Mays for fourth place on the career homer list, connecting for No. 661 Thursday night an at-bat after he was robbed of the milestone drive by a leaping catch.

The New York Yankees star hit a drive off Baltimore’s Chris Tillman just to the left of Monument Park in centre field in the third inning. A-Rod sent a shot in the first that Delmon Young caught by reaching over the top of the wall in right field.

The Yankees, who said they will not pay a $6 million bonus after he matched the Say Hey Kid on Friday in Boston, put a message honouring the milestone that gave New York a 3-2 lead.

Mark Teixeira stepped out of the batter’s box as the cheers swelled. Rodriguez briefly emerged from the dugout and waved to the crowd with both hands above his head.
