Mark Teixeira Gets Ridiculously Infuriated With Steven Matz (Video)

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.

  1. teixeira hasn’t been relevant since 2011 and i suppose he’s frustrated about his derailed career, but there’s no reason to act like a baby…no pitcher intentionally throws at a batter’s legs…time to hang em up, mark?
