Tex’s 3-run jack keeps Yankees surging

Mark Teixeira’s three-run homer in the fourth and A.J. Burnett’s second straight quality start propelled the Yankees to a 6-2 win over the A’s to complete the sweep.

Best of All: Nick Swisher made his final effort for the Final Vote count by falling a triple short of the cycle and scoring twice. You have until 4 p.m. today to vote him in, so keep on texting!

Teixeira and Alex Rodriguez each pounded two homers in this series. This could be bad news for the rest of baseball, just as long as the All-Star break doesn’t make them go cold again.

Worst of All: A-Rod was the only starter without a hit. Shucks!

Of course, now that the trade deadline is nearing, the bullpen will start pitching like Hall of Famers. Once again, no runs through two innings of work by Damaso Marte and Joba Chamberlain.

Coming Up: The Yankees begin a four-game road trip with the Mariners tonight. But the biggest news is Saturday’s 3-D debut in baseball, starting with these two teams. And then again on Sunday. I would say, “huddle around a 3-D television,” but, like me, you probably don’t know anyone who owns one yet!
