Mark Teixeira rejoined the Yankees' lineup last night after missing much of the past month due to a calf injury.

The New York Yankees received a boost in their pursuit of an American League East crown last night, as first baseman Mark Teixeira returned to the lineup.

Teixeira hit fifth for the Yankees in his return, going 1-3 with a two-run home run and a walk in the club’s 10-2 victory over the Boston Red Sox. The victory coupled with a loss by the Baltimore Orioles gave New York a one-game lead in the East.

Teixeira has missed most of the past month due to a calf injury. The 32-year-old sustained the injury at the end of August. He was able to return after missing a week and a half of action, but aggravated the strain in his first game back. Teixeira’s been sidelined since making his return last night.

The Yankees are certainly glad to have Teixeira back on their roster as they prepare for the playoffs. The slugger has hit .256/.337/.484 with 27 doubles and 24 home runs over 442 at-bats this season.
