CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- Alex Rodriguez went hitless in two at-bats for the Charleston RiverDogs in his first game since left hip surgery in January.

Rodriguez played three innings at third base Tuesday night for the Yankees Class-A affiliate and came out after he took a called strike three to end the third inning. He also grounded into a double play in the first.

Rodriguez was tested quickly in the field when Rome's Kyle Wren opened the game with a bunt single to third. Rodriguez charged strongly and fielded it with his bare hand, but could not throw to first on time.

Rome shortstop Jose Peraza also bunted down the third base line in the second inning and Rodriguez was too far back to make a play.

Rodriguez expects to play again Wednesday night.
