Video: Yankees' Alex Rodriguez hits home run at Reading

The Reading Fightin' Phils are pretty popular as is, but they landed in an even bigger spotlight during Monday's game against the Trenton Thunder at First Energy Stadium.

Trenton is the New York Yankees' double A affiliate, and lately star third baseman Alex Rodriguez has been with the team for a rehab assignment. His latest road trip with the Thunder is this week's bus ride to Baseballtown

A-Rod grounded out in the first inning and hit a single in the third. Then, in the fifth, he gave the crowd its money's worth. With Trenton down 4-1, he launched a two-run homer to left field. The shot sparked a rally that led to a 6-5 Thunder win.
