Is Elias wrong about A-Rod’s six-RBI games?

UPDATE: In reference to the table below, 9+4+1=14. Elias win, Lenny fail. Thanks, TFabp. (Still, Marchand never said “six or more” in his post.)

I discovered this last night when YES Network’s Michael Kay started talking about Alex Rodriguez’s six-RBI games for his career. Kay said he had 14 on the broadcast. ESPN’s Andrew Marchand mentioned the same statistic in a blog post, citing the Elias Sports Bureau.

For the record, Baseball Reference says A-Rod has nine six-RBI games.

Maybe I just don’t know how to use the Play Index section correctly.
