BALTIMORE — Alex Rodriguez has joined Hank Aaron as the only players in major league history with 2,000 career RBIs.

Rodriguez hit a two-run homer Saturday night for the New York Yankees in a game against the Baltimore Orioles. The sixth-inning drive off Bud Norris lifted A-Rod’s career RBI total to 2,001.

Hank Aaron ranks first on the career list with 2,297 RBIs.

It was the 666th career home run for Rodriguez, fourth on baseball’s all-time list behind Babe Ruth, Aaron and Barry Bonds.
