WASHINGTON (AP) - Mark Teixeira hit a two-run double in the 14th inning Saturday as the New York Yankees won their eighth straight game, beating the Washington Nationals 5-3.

Teixeira's drive to the right field corner off Brad Lidge (0-1) brought home Jayson Nix and Derek Jeter in the longest game by innings played by either team this season.

Freddy Garcia (1-2) pitched two innings to get the win.

Rafael Soriano handled the bottom of the 14th for his 12th save, but only after allowing back-to-back one-out singles to Jesus Flores and Steve Lombardozzi. The game ended when Soriano got Bryce Harper to ground out, ending an 0-for-7 day for the Nationals' teen sensation that included five strikeouts.
