TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - For Alex Rodriguez, more cheers mixed with boos.

The New York Yankees star got another split reception Thursday in his first spring training game at home since admitting he used performance-enhancing drugs. Rodriguez tested positive for steroids in 2001-03 with Texas.

Rodriguez went 0-for-2 and left after five innings with the Yankees leading Tampa Bay 2-0. The crowd at George M. Steinbrenner Field included the Yankees owner.

Rodriguez homered Wednesday in the Yankees' exhibition opener
against Toronto. He heard some catcalls at the Blue Jays' ballpark, but also drew a standing ovation after his home run.
