Still turning the corner

Last night, Mark Teixeira got a hit without swinging the bat.

The game was over and the Yankees were back in the clubhouse when the official scorer in Baltimore changed an E-4 to a single, giving Teixeira a second hit in the game and a 2-for-5 night.

For almost anyone else, a scoring change wouldn’t even be a footnote, but Teixeira is trying to get going again, and little victories matter.

Believe it or not — and you probably will believe it — Teixeira’s current .224 average is his highest of the season, the same as on May 17 when his stats were boosted by a terrific two and a half weeks that included three straight multi-hit games.

“I thought he stayed on the ball longer, and I think he was trying to use the middle of the field,” Joe Girardi said. “His approach was very good (Tuesday), and we’ll just try to build on it.”
