Marcus Thames is the hottest hitter in baseball right now.
Adding to last night’s 11-4 win over the Athletics, Thames went deep for his sixth home run in as many games.
New York broke it open as the first five batters reached safely in the bottom half. Teixeira led off with a double and scored on Cano’s single, which chased Cahill. Swisher hit an RBI double off Henry Rodriguez,
Jorge Posada was hit by a pitch and Thames drove a three-run shot into the second deck in left, just inside the foul pole.
Thames has nine hits, 11 RBIs, seven runs scored, a double, two walks and a .476 average during his scorching six-game stretch.
Thames had a similar streak with Tigers in 2008 he had six homers in five games (June 13-17).
