Mark Teixeria went 2-for-4 with two home runs and 4 RBI on Friday night vs the Mets

Tex was locked in on Friday night, as he refused to allow deGrom to get a fastball by him. Both of his home runs were balls that he turned on and launched into the second deck of the house that Jeter built. Of his 12 hits on the year, seven of them are home runs. He may not be hitting for average, but Tex is certainly making the most of his contact by slugging at a high clip. Going forward understand that his average won’t be there, but his power surge is an encouraging sign.  Analysis: Dom Murtha
