READING, Pa. -

Alex Rodriguez hit the first home run of his rehab assignment, helping the Trenton Thunder earn a 6-5 victory over the Reading Fightin Phils.

A-Rod finished 2-4 on the evening and exited in the 7th inning. The 3-time MVP is expected to play in Tuesday night's game in Reading. His status for Wednesday's finale is still in question.

The Thunder entered the top of the 9th trailing 4-3. But they scored 3 runs and held off a rally by the Fightin Phils to earn the one-run victory.
