BALTIMORE (AP) -- Alex Rodriguez has joined Hank Aaron as the only players in major league history with 2,000 career RBIs.

Rodriguez hit a two-run homer Saturday night for the New York Yankees in a game against the Baltimore Orioles. The sixth-inning drive off Bud Norris lifted A-Rod's career RBI total to 2,001.

Hank Aaron ranks first on the career list with 2,297 RBIs.

Records get tricky when it comes to runs batted in, partly because RBIs did not become an official stat until 1920. So while baseball-reference.com lists Babe Ruth with 2,214 and Cap Anson with 2,075, the Elias Sports Bureau - baseball's official statistician - puts Rodriguez ahead of both of them.

It was the 666th career home run for Rodriguez, fourth on baseball's all-time list behind Ruth, Aaron and Barry Bonds.
