Teixeira Must Mean Three!

Mark Teixeira blasted 3 home runs Sunday afternoon as the Atlanta Braves defeated the Seattle Mariners 8-3. He belted two solo shots and one 2-runner for a total of 4 RBI's on the day. It was his second career 3-homer day and the first for an Atlanta player at Turner Field. The 3 round-trippers give Mark T a total of 13 for the season. 6 of those 13 have come in the month of June. After a slow and inconsistent start so far this season, maybe this game is the start of more good things to follow. With all the injures the Braves continue to experience, they need Teixeira to begin putting it all together offensively. Also in Sunday's contest, Tim Hudson allowed only 4 hits in 7 scoreless innings, lowering his ERA to 2.96 for the season.
