With today’s 9-2 win in Oakland, the Yankees have matched their longest winning streak of the season and continued their offensive resurgence. Mark Teixeira and Robinson Cano each homered for a second consecutive day, the Yankees scored at least six runs for a third straight day and starter CC Sabathia snapped a modest two-game losing streak by allowing two runs through seven innings. Five different Yankees had at least two hits, including Teixeira who went 4-for-5 with two home runs and five RBI. It was only the second time this season that Teixeira had more than two RBI in a game.
