Aug. 7 (UPI) --
If it wasn't abundantly clear that Alex Rodriguez is one of the least popular players in baseball, Tuesday night's game against the Chicago White Sox hammered the point home.
Rodriguez, who was suspended 211 games for his involvement with the Biogenesis anti-aging clinic but has been allowed to play through his appeal, was clocked by a pitch from Sox right-hander Chris Sale during the third inning.
The embattled slugger laughed it off as he jogged to first, and the fourth-place Yankees dropped their third in a row, falling 3-2 to Chicago.
