A-Rod at Top of his Game

Despite all that has gone wrong around him, Alex Rodriguez is at the top of his game, becoming just the sixth player in major league history with five straight 40 homer seasons. Rodriguez hit his 43rd homer on Saturday night, tying Sammy Sosa of the Chicago Cubs for the major league lead. It was also Rodriguez's fifth homer in seven at bats in the Texas Rangers' weekend series against Toronto.

Rodriguez hit three home runs in Texas' 9 - 5 victory over the Blue Jays on Friday, a night after his ninth inning shot capped his 4-for-4 effort in a 6 - 5 win over Toronto.
