NEW YORK (AP) When the Yankees returned to wade into the ALCS American League, it is likely that without Mark Teixeira (notes).
Autumn bat injured his right thigh missed grounder in the fifth inning of New York's loss to the Jets 6 Sanchez AFL50th jersey
Texas Rangers 3:10 into Game 4 on Tuesday night.
He carefully left the field with the help and was sent to an MRI in New York-Presbyterian Hospital.
Tex said he felt something pop in his hamstring injury, the Yankees, Joe Girardi said. Unless a miracle he is not playing with us tomorrow. We want to educate (Eduardo) Nez, if hed be off the next round. does not look good.
It is not really very well, Girardi said.
A slim hope, said Girardi, the Yankees not a train shortly before Wednesday game. to keep the main reason is that Teixeira could be replaced in the list ALCS, but he would for the World Series, if they qualify in advance. Trailing 3-1 in the seven games in the series, so thats for the Yankees, not the clutch hits against the Rangers great. Both were 13 runners in scoring position with on Tuesday.
With runners on first and second with no deduction, Teixeira hit a grounding to third base. Michael Young (Notes) stepped on the bag strength. Teixeira, trying to prevent a double play, grabbed the back of the leg as he approached the bag and grimaced in pain as he stumbled through the last inequality and slipped awkwardly on the floor. He was safe in a large number of young people.
Girardi and assistant trainer Steve Donohue came out to see the two-time All-Star, while the Yankee Stadium crowd became strangely quiet. There were some protests Teixeira, who played through a broken toe and thumb pain for much of the second half before the game with a groan from the fans, disappearing into the clubhouse for perhaps the last time this season.
It is difficult, but at the same time, can not sit and feel sorry for you, shortstop Derek Jeter (notes), he said. We have to go a couple of Steelers 43 Polamalu jersey
people have to, and this step in the job.Marcus are Thames (scores) entered as a pinch runner and remained in the game in right field. Nick Swisher (White) has been moved from right field to see Teixeira at first base.
The No. 3 hitter from 0 to 14 in the NLC, the second straight rough sets. Last year he hit .180 (11 of 61) but has homered in a win over Minnesota in the division series.
However, the three-time Gold Glove has provided stellar defense. He started 3-6-1 double play hard in the fifth inning Tuesday, which is now on the right, at the same time avoiding an excerpt from Mitch Moreland (Notes) fights for the ball outside the court.
And despite his struggles at the plate, it is always a threat. Teixeira fell earlier in the season, but in the end take 33 home runs and driving in runs 108th
It is difficult, every time a guy goes down like that, you know one of the biggest parts of our team, outfielder Brett Gardner (notes), he said. There is nothing we can do about it. You know, keep grinding and continue to fight, and there is 10 guys step up, and to complement and take care of him.
This is what happened, to try to enter Yankees take the game in the 0194 ALCS do.The, you can use all the help they can get to use them. Again and again, do not come with great success on Tuesday.
Alex Rodriguez (notes) was 0-2, ending a threat in the fifth inning ground into a double play is the 0133-series in the eye.
New York loaded the Steelers 43 Polamalu jersey
bases with three walks in the eighth inning, but the Swiss hit a popup to center field, and Lance Berkman (Notes) meet in a field player choice.
