Salmon nets No. 299
Teixeira drives in five
Mark Teixeira, who reached 30 home runs a night earlier, went deep twice, both times tying the game, but the Rangers were unable cash in the power surge. Both of Teixeira's blasts came against rookie sensation Jered Weaver, a three-run shot in the fifth and a two-run shot in the seventh.
