UNDATED (AP) - Chicago White Sox fans declined to give Alex Rodriguez a warm and fuzzy ovation as he stepped to the plate for the first time this season. He was greeted to a chorus of boos that lasted through the first pitch he saw from pitcher Jose Quintana leading off the second inning.
Rodriguez also took the next pitch before hitting a bloop single just beyond the reach of left fielder Casper Wells. Rodriguez also went from first to third without any visible problem on a Vernon Wells double six pitches later, but the two were left stranded.
A-Rod flied out in his next two at-bats and finished the night with one hit in four at bats. The Yankees lost to the White Sox 8-to-1.
