    Mark Teixeira is on a hot streak, and it doesn't seem to matter whether he's swinging right- or left-handed.

    Teixeira homered from both sides of the plate for the record 14th time, hitting his 10th grand slam and a two-run homer that led the New York Yankees over the Chicago White Sox 13-6 Friday night.

    "It's been good since the All-Star break," Teixeira said. "Just seeing the ball real well right now and getting some good pitches to hit."

    Teixeira had his second straight two-homer game and leads the Yankees with 28 homers and 73 RBI.

    Batting right-handed, Teixeira's slam off Carlos Rodon (4-4) put New York ahead 6-0 in a five-run second. Batting left-handed, he connected against Matt Albers for a 9-2 lead in a five-run fourth.

    That helped New York rebound from a 7-6 loss at Texas on Thursday.
