CHICAGO (AP) – Mark Teixeira set a major league record by homering from both sides of the plate for the 12th time and Phil Hughes pitched six innings to send the New York Yankees to their fifth straight victory, 6-0 over the fading Chicago White Sox in a game called after 6 1-2 innings because of rain.

Teixeira’s two-run shot to left batting right-handed against John Danks made it 4-0 in the third and was his 30th homer of the season – marking the seventh straight season the slugger has reached that mark. He added a solo drive batting left-handed against Jason Frasor in the seventh.

Teixeira broke a tie with Eddie Murray and Chili Davis, who each homered 11 times from both sides in the same game.
