A-Rod continues climb up career RBI list
WASHINGTON -- Alex Rodriguez's run-scoring single in the third inning on Friday accounted for the the 1,924th RBI of his career to tie Jimmie Foxx for sixth place all-time in Major League history, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Rodriguez stroked a ground ball through the right side of the infield while facing Nationals hurler Gio Gonzalez, giving the Yankees a 1-0 lead as they played the franchise's first game at Nationals Park.

Due to discrepancies in historical stats, some numbers may differ according to the source. Elias is the official statistician of Major League Baseball and credits Foxx with 1,924 RBIs.

Other historical sources believe Foxx -- who played 20 seasons during a Hall of Fame career with the Athletics, Red Sox, Cubs and Phillies from 1925 to 1945 -- collected a total of 1,922 RBIs.
