Teixeira sets record with HRs, Yankees down White Sox

Aug 3, 2011 - 6:26 AM Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Mark Teixeira homered from both sides of the plate and drove in three runs to back Phil Hughes' rain-shortened shutout, as the Yankees downed the White Sox, 6-0, in the second meeting of a four-game series.

Teixeira went deep as a lefty and righty in the same game for the 12th time in his career, surpassing Eddie Murray and Chili Davis for most all-time.

The feat somewhat overshadowed Hughes (2-3), who did not allow a runner into scoring position in the first shutout of his career. The 25-year-old right- hander gave up just three hits with no walks and four strikeouts in six innings.

"I wanted to pitch well, and I knew I could do better than what I had been showing," Hughes said.

New York has won five straight and eight of 10 overall.

John Danks (4-9) gave up four runs on nine hits in six innings to snap a four- decision winning streak. The White Sox have lost four in a row following a 5-1 stretch.

"My job is to get the best things out of those guys; I don't care how," White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said.

Derek Jeter, who missed a game after taking a pitch off his hand on Sunday, returned to the lineup and scored in the first and third innings.

He started the contest with a single and scored on Robinson Cano's double over Alex Rios' head in center. Jeter led off the third with a double and trotted home when Teixeira, batting from the right side, poked his 30th home run inside the left-field foul pole.

Russell Martin hammered a solo homer in the second inning, and Teixeira, facing the right-hander Jason Frasor, made MLB history with a solo shot of his own in the seventh.

Andruw Jones knocked in a run later in the inning, and the rain came during the seventh-inning stretch. After a lengthy delay, the game was called.
