Mark Teixeira played for the Angels only briefly. He was with the team for 54 games in 2008 and slugged .632 during that stretch. He had a .670 slugging percentage at Angel Stadium that year. Back on familiar ground, Teixeira showed some of that familiar power, hitting two home runs in a 5-3 Yankees win against the Angels. The win capped a successful road trip that saw the Yankees win six of nine, despite facing a series of front-line starters. Bartolo Colon’s return to Anaheim wasn’t as dominant as Teixeira’s, but it was good enough for a win, thanks largely to 3.2 scoreless innings by the Yankees bullpen and a pivotal double play that ended it.
