Mark Teixeira had a monster night Friday against the Rangers, going 3-for-6 with two home runs, six RBI, and two walks.

Batting right-handed, Teixeira took Carlos Rodon deep for a grand slam in the second inning before connecting for a two-run shot against Matt Albers from the left side in the fourth. It was the 14th time in his career that he homered from both sides of the plate in the same game, setting a new major league record. The veteran slugger has back-to-back multi-homer games and is now batting .269/.375/.585 with 28 home runs and 73 RBI on the year. It's been a remarkable resurgence.

Nathan Eovaldi yielded three runs over 5 2/3 innings in Friday's 13-6 win over the White Sox.

It wasn't the sharpest outing from Eovaldi, as he allowed seven hits (including a two-run homer to Jose Abreu) and three walks while throwing 117 pitches. The Yankees would have liked to see him pitch deeper into the game, but he had the benefit of a ton of run support, so he improved to 11-2 on the year. The hard-throwing right-hander will bring a 4.30 ERA into a start against the Red Sox next week at home.

Carlos Rodon was knocked around for eight runs over three-plus innings Friday in a loss to the Yankees.

It was the shortest start of his brief major league career. Rodon gave up a five-spot in the second inning, the big blow of which was a grand slam from Mark Teixeira. He finally got the hook in the fourth after throwing a wild pitch to score a run and walking Alex Rodriguez. The rookie southpaw gave up eight hits and four walks while also throwing three wild pitches. His ERA jumped from 4.09 to 4.84 in the loss. Inconsistency has been the name of the game for him lately, but he'll attempt to bounce back next week against the Rays.

Alex Rodriguez was 2-for-2 with an RBI single, three walks, and four runs scored against the White Sox on Friday.

Once again, A-Rod and Teixeira got it done in the middle of the Yankees' lineup. The 40-year-old has now hit safely in seven straight games and currently ranks fifth in the AL with a .930 OPS. He's on pace for 38 home runs and 97 RBI to go along with 98 runs scored. Who saw this coming?
Aug 1 - 1:45 AM

Jose Abreu launched a two-run homer Friday in a losing effort against the Yankees.

Abreu finished July with a flourish, batting .381 (16-for-42) with four home runs and 15 RBI over his last 11 games. He has hit safely in all of them. The 28-year-old is in a good situation in Chicago and it would be no surprise if he led the AL in homers over the final two months of the season.
Aug 1 - 1:44 AM

Adam LaRoche went 4-for-5 with an RBI single in Friday's loss to the Yankees.

His four hits tied a career-high. With the White Sox being blown out, LaRoche also got to pitch the ninth inning and made it through a scoreless frame with a strikeout. A big night on what has mostly been a frustrating year for him.
Aug 1 - 1:44 AM

Jason Hammel gave up one run in 5 2/3 innings of work Friday in a 4-1 win over the Brewers.

The lone run scored on a solo homer from Ryan Braun in the first inning. Hammel gave up six hits in all while walking two and striking out four, which was good enough for his first win since June 6. It was nice to see after he was knocked around for six runs by the Phillies last time out. The 32-year-old has a strong 3.13 ERA over 20 starts this season and has an important start next time out against the Giants at home.
Aug 1 - 1:17 AM

Taylor Jungmann fell to the Cubs on Friday after giving up three runs (two earned) in 5 2/3 innings.

Jungmann threw a career-high 112 pitches. While he failed to make it out of the sixth inning, he pitched fairly well, allowing seven hits and two walks while notching seven strikeouts. The 25-year-old has held his own during his first stint in the majors, posting a 2.23 ERA and 53/21 K/BB ratio in 64 2/3 innings over 10 starts. However, we're still a bit hesitant about trusting him in mixed fantasy leagues.
