What A Stud
While John Smoltz was pitching vintage Sunday baseball, Teixeira was hitting lights out.
The recently-acquired switch-hitter erupted The Jake after driving in four runs on two homers to aid in the Atlanta Braves' 6-2 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks. One of Teixeira's bombs came in the first inning and the other in the third - both off Yusmeiro Petit.
The 27-year-old first baseman has gone deep seven times in 17 games so far with Atlanta, giving him 20 longballs and 68 RBIs on the season.
