MLB: NY Yankees LF Alfonso Soriano Hits 400th Home Run

New York Yankees left fielder Alfonso Soriano hit his 400th career home run off the Toronto Blue Jays' J.A. Happ on Tuesday.

New York Yankees outfielder Alfonso Soriano hit his 400th career home run on Tuesday. 

Soriano actually crushed two homers to left field in order to reach the career milestone, per MLB.com's Bryan Hoch. The milestone hits came at the expense of Toronto Blue Jays pitcher J.A. Happ in the Yankees 7-1 victory at Rogers Centre. 

The first home run was a three-run blast in the first inning while the second one was a solo shot in the third inning. 

The home runs accounted for his 27th and 28th of the 2013 MLB season, according to CBS New York. Those were also his 10th and 11th since rejoining the Yankees in a trade with the Chicago Cubs on July 26. 

Hoch notes Soriano joins an elite group of Yankees to reach the 400-home run milestone as a member of the organization. The others include Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Mickey Matle, Reggie Jackson, Gary Sheffield and Alex Rodriguez. 

Soriano said he wanted to get it over with. 

"I didn't want the same thing that happened when I got my 2,000th (hit) when it took a couple of games. As soon as I got the first one, I just put in my mind,'Let me swing if I see something close to home plate, try to hit another one and get it out of the way.' Thank God it happened."

Soriano's rejuvenated play hasn't escaped the eye of Yankees manager Joe Girardi.  

"What he's done here in the month of August, I'm sure people are talking about it. There's baseball left in this guy, and he can have a really good year." 

Soriano's accomplishment is one of three for the Yankees within a one-week span. Right fielder Ichiro Suzuki recorded his 4,000th hit on August 21 while third baseman Alex Rodriguez hit his 650th career home run in Toronto on August 27, placing him fifth all-time.
