There was a minor problem with starting pitch of Yankees, but they got a good contribution from their bottom players. Last week, Yankees had a victory because of Randy Winn, Brett Gardner and Nick Swisher. Teixeira also said that whatever may be the reason for his slow start, but it always proves good for him. In April he had hit .136 through nine runs.
On Saturday, May, after four hits, he is now batting on .400 through 10 R.B.I. This has increased his average above .200 which has never happened before. This is also nearly equal to the total of Gardner’s career home runs in one day. Besides Lou Gehrig (1927), Teixeira is one of those Yankee player who has hit three home runs against Red Sox. This third home of Teixeira was in opposition to Jonathan Van Every who is an outfielder pitching at ninth.

Yankees are hoping to regain their full confidence of the players.
Jorge Posada is the next man to rejoin on Sunday. He is a designated hitter, but Yankees have never missed a player like him. Another dynamic offensive player who is very popular for his defense is Cervelli. Throughout this season, Yankees had maintained a habit of winning.
