Teixeira and Matsui hit solo homers off familiar foe Pedro Martinez, backing a sharp performance by A.J. Burnett and giving the Yankees a 3-1 victory over the Phillies in Game 2 on Thursday night.
A night after getting held to a lone unearned run by Cliff Lee, the Yankees bounced back with their bats. Burnett did his part with seven impressive innings, and Mariano Rivera got Game 1 star Chase Utley to ground into a double play with two on to end the eighth.
After a day off, Game 3 will be at Citizens Bank Park on Saturday night.
