Hit by a pitch for the second time, Mark Teixeira made an aggressive slide to spark the Yankees' seven-run fourth inning, the first run being the 1,500th of Derek Jeter's career. A half-inning earlier, Jorge Posada's wide throw snapped a record errorless streak, but he made up for it with a three-run homer in the sixth.
