Yankees Drop Rubber Match To Braves

The Yankees had a 10 game winning streak heading into last night’s action against the Atlanta Braves. Less than 24 hours later they have a 2 game streak in the opposite direction. In a rare 2012 day game, the Yankees fell to the Braves 10-5 in a game that featured 9 home runs, a record in the new stadium.

Jason Heyward had two of the Braves five long balls, including a 2 run shot to put the game out of reach in the top of the 8th. Phil Hughes, the Yankees’ notoriously inconsistent 5th starter lasted just 4.1 innings, serving up 4 of those homers and yielding 6 earned runs. The loss drops Hughes to 7-6 on the season.

It wasn’t all bad for the Yankees, however. After falling behind 6-1 early in the ballgame the team showed a good deal of fight, cutting the score to 6-5 before the bullpen fell apart. Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter, Eric Chavez and Robinson Cano all hit solo shots, with Granderson adding an RBI single in the 7th. The Yankees are now 41-27 on the season, and 20-14 at home.
