Baseball: Teixeira's homer pushes Yanks past Twins in Game 1

-A A +A
By Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The New York Yankees became Major League Baseball's flagship franchise almost as much for the glamorous image they project as for the 27 titles in their trophy case.

From Babe Ruth to Derek Jeter, Joltin' Joe to A-Rod, the Yankees have almost always been the bluebloods of baseball.

Until this year. The 2010 Yanks are defined by resilience, grit and a never-give-up attitude that belies their $200 million payroll and Broadway billing.

Mark Teixeira hit a tiebreaking, two-run homer in the seventh inning and the Yankees rallied to a 6-4 victory over Minnesota on Wednesday night in Game 1 of the AL division series, the Twins' 10th straight postseason loss.

During the regular season, the Yankees overcame deficits of three runs or more to win seven times, according to STATS LLC, and led the majors with 48 come-from-behind victories. Seven of their 11 victories in the postseason last year came after they fell behind, including all three against the Twins.
