New York Yankees defeat Seattle Mariners, 4-2

Alex Rodriguez drilled a ball into the right field seats and braced himself for a raucous celebration at home plate.

There was only one problem. It was still the eighth inning.

"I thought I hit a much bigger home run than I actually did," A-Rod admitted. "I honestly thought it was the ninth inning and that we walked off. I was going to go to the spread and get some food. When I saw A.J. and Andy not moving and jumping the railing, I said, 'Oh crap. I better run.'"
