Teixeira goes off on Mets and Matz after getting plunked (VIDEO)

No doubt about the fact that Mark Teixeira has been having a rough outing this season. Actually the oft-injured Yankee has been quietly limping around the Bronx for the past few years but Wednesday night the Gold Glove first baseman finally used his bat and his mouth to shut up his critics.

Tex jacked a three-run homer in the second inning off Mets starter Steven Matz before firing up his Yankees’ teammates by yelling at Matz when the lefty drilled him in the left shin the next time up at bat.

Teixeira's reaction to getting hit by Matz was punctuated by him screaming at Matz, “You’ve got to be kidding,’’ as Mets catcher Rene Rivera escorted Teixeira to first base while players from the dugouts and bullpens came out onto the field and puffed out their chests.
Firing his shin guards into the air as Teixeira was escorted to first might have been a funny sight but maybe not as comical as the pumped up Mets bullpen standing around waiting for some action.

Teixeira's home run helped the Yankees to a 9-5 Subway Series victory over the Mets in front of a sold-out crowd of 48,339 — the largest Yankee Stadium crowd this season.
