Yankees Dominate White Sox


AP Sports Writer

NEW YORK (AP) – Mark Teixeira tied a career high with four hits

and Robinson Cano had a three-run homer, backing another dominant

performance by Phil Hughes in the New York Yankees' 12-3 rout of

the Chicago White Sox on Sunday.

Teixeira continued his emergence from an April slump with a

two-run double and three singles that raised his average to .189.

Nick Swisher added a two-run shot and Brett Gardner hit a rare

homer to help the Yankees take two of three from Chicago.

Hughes (3-0) stymied the White Sox, limiting them to four hits

over seven innings. Hughes, who won the No. 5 starter job this

spring, had not allowed more than three hits in any of his first

three starts. He struck out six while walking one.
