Mark Teixeira’s Grand Slam Gets Help, New York Yankees Look Revamped
A few months ago, the New York Yankees were left for dead by the majority of MLB fans. Well, the month of June is here and the the Bronx Bombers have weathered the injury bug and sit just 2.5 games behind the streaky Boston Red Sox.
One of the main reasons that so many predicted a Yankees downfall in 2013 was because sluggger Mark Teixeira would be out for approximately two months due to a wrist injury. Somehow, New York produced runs without its starting first baseman and on Monday night Tex finally smashed his first home run of the entire season — he also made sure that his first bomb of 2013 would be one worth remembering.
With Justin Masterson on the hill for the Cleveland Indians everyone figured New York would go quietly, but instead they hung a seven spot on an AL Cy Young candidate. Contributing to the rout was Teixeira, who hit a grand slam that was highly criticized due to a small fan in right field who appeared to snatch it from the field of play. Terry Francona didn’t feel it necessary to review the play and upon further review it was in fact a clean dinger.
Hopefully, the homer spells a hot streak for Tex because he was really struggling before bopping one off of Masterson. Prior to the blast, Texiera had struck out seven times in just nine at-bats.
Although the Yankees appear to be in the clear with the disabled list starting to thin out, they still need more production from the corner infielders and all three outfield spots to propel further in the AL East standings that are always jam-packed.
