Mark Teixeira hits 300th career homer in win over Brewers

Mark Teixeira‘s major league-leading 25th homer of 2011 Thursday against the Brewers was also his 300th career homer, as he moved into a tie for 129th place on the all-time list.

The Yankees ended up beating Milwaukee 5-0, with CC Sabathia matching his career high with 13 strikeouts in 7 2/3 scoreless innings.  He became the first pitcher to reach 11 wins this season, though Justin Verlander matched him less than an hour later.

Teixeira broke a tie with Jose Bautista atop the home run standings with his 25th bomb.  He’s hit four in his last five games.

With Teixeira’s inclusion, the 300-homer club is now 130 members strong.  Five more players have a chance to join the list this year: Aramis Ramirez (298), Adrian Beltre (292), Pat Burrell (292), Carlos Beltran (291) and Magglio Ordonez (291).

    I may get reamed out for mentioning fantasy baseball but people need to stop offering me idiotic trades for big Tex. Today someone offered Jayson Werth for Tex straight up. Ugh.

    As for the 300 club good for him. Ramirez, Beltre and Beltran should join him this year. Not sure Burrell or Maggs will.

      I would be looking for Tex too, Werth I just dumped. This isn’t a fantasy site (except for bicepts) so you can talk about anything you want as long as you leave ARod alone.
