Mark Teixeira this month: .330/.398/.747. Just a run of the mill 1.145 OPS.

He had nine doubles, 13 homers, 34 RBI and 25 runs scored in 28 games. His batting average, once at .182, has climbed to .281. Tex also has hit in 13 straight games (at 22 of 55). The streak is the longest of his career.

So, Mark, are you excited? Not so much.

“The law of averages caught up to me,” he said. “It was a good month but it looks better because I had such a bad April. Hopefully I keep this up. I really feel great.”
