Teixeira homers, CC wins as Yanks top A's

BY foxsports • July 24, 2009

No matter what time the game starts these days, the New York Yankees are ready to win.

Mark Teixeira homered and drove in three runs, CC Sabathia recovered from a shaky start and New York extended its winning streak to seven Thursday night with a rain-delayed 6-3 victory over the Oakland Athletics.

"We expect to win every night," Teixeira said.

Jorge Posada knocked in two runs and Phil Hughes tossed two perfect innings for his first major league save as New York increased its AL East lead to 2 1/2 games over idle Boston.
