Following a home run in the second inning, Mark Teixeira stepped back up and was drilled by a Steven Matz fastball.
Tell us how you really feel, Mark.
After blasting an opposite field go-ahead homer in the second inning, Mark Teixeira was hit below the knee with a Steven Matz fastball in his next plate appearance. Clearly viewing it as a message pitch, the Yankee first baseman evidently displayed frustration with the Mets’ southpaw (video above).
On a night which has featured no command from Matz whatsoever and a harmless 6-3 Yankee lead, there is little to no chance that intention is attached to that offering.
Teixeira may be a little upset that his health was jeopardized once more, but that’s simply part of what has become a tricky game for the 36-year-old.
The game is currently in the seventh inning as the teams battle it out in the Bronx. Catch the remainder of the action on YES or SNY.
