by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/25/2015) Alex Rodriguez had a huge night Saturday for the Yankees, blasting three home runs, including the game-tying shot in the ninth inning, as New York rallied for an 8-5 win over the Twins. 

Rodriguez's three longballs went an estimated total of 1,308 feet, just a few feet short of the 1,320 feet in a quarter-mile. He connected for a massive, 450-foot homer in the fourth to put the Yankees on the board, a two-run shot in the seventh to slice the deficit to 5-3 and the dramatic ninth-inning blast to center off Twins closer Glen Perkins. 

According to MLB.com, Rodriguez is the first player to tie the game in the 9th inning by hitting his third HR of the night since Mike Lowell did so on April 21, 2004.

The ball was misplayed by Tigers pitcher Alfredo Simon, making Ortiz look bad when he was thrown out.
