Alex Rodriguez hitless in first game back

July 3, 2013

Alex Rodriguez called his season's debut a success, even if the results Tuesday night didn't bear that out.

Rodriguez played his first game since a miserable October and went hitless in two at-bats for the Charleston RiverDogs.

In his first game since left hip surgery in January, Rodriguez grounded into a double play in his first time up then struck out looking against 23-year-old Williams Perez to end the third before coming out for the night.
