This Day in Baseball History:
September 5, 2002 > Alex Rodriguez of the Texas Rangers hits two home runs in an 11-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles. A-Rod's second blast gives him 50 for the season, making him just the fifth player in Major League history to collect that many dingers in consecutive campaigns. After finishing with 52 the year before, the slugging shortstop will pound a total of 57 in 2002.
