Yanks poised to feed off Tex's sizzling bat
ANAHEIM -- Mark Teixeira's fourth home run in his last four games was a footnote in the Yankees' 9-8 loss to the Angels on Monday, but his contributions have made a major impact.

Teixeira is batting .480 (12-for-25) with eight runs scored, four doubles and 10 RBIs in his last seven games, catching fire after shaking off a nagging cough that sapped his energy level.

"He looks great at the plate," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "That's good to see. When we get guys hitting the way they're capable, we're able to put up big numbers."
