NEW YORK (AP) -- Atlanta manager Fredi Gonzalez was detailing his team's latest loss, running down the list of what went wrong. Then, very calmly, he added: "I have an announcement to make." It was not good news for the Braves, either -- right-hander Brandon Beachy has a partial tear in his elbow. Gonzalez revealed the results of an MRI exam after Monday night's 6-2 defeat by the New York Yankees. He did not elaborate on the severity of the injury, and said Beachy would see the team doctor before visiting noted orthopedist Dr. James Andrews for a second opinion. The 25-year-old Beachy is leading the majors with a 2.00 ERA. He is 5-5 in 13 starts in his first big league season. Beachy was pulled from a start Saturday night and put on the 15-day disabled list the next day. All in all, a lost day for Braves. CC Sabathia struck out 10, Derek Jeter drove in three runs for the Yankees. Mark Teixeira and Robinson Cano hit solo home runs as New York matched its longest winning streak since May 2005. The team with the AL's best record kept rampaging in interleague play -- all 10 of these triumphs have come against NL teams with winning records, including a sweep at Turner Field last week. Michael Bourn led off the game with a triple and scored when Martin Prado followed with a groundout, ending Atlanta's 20-inning shutout string. But the Braves' first game at the new Yankee Stadium and first trip to the Bronx since 2006 still resulted in their seventh loss in eight tries. "We had some opportunities to get CC. But as he always does, he gets better, stronger," Gonzalez said. Mike Minor (3-5) took a 2-0 lead into the fifth before Alex Rodriguez opened with a sharp single for the Yankees' first hit. Cano followed with a walk, and Russell Martin lined a ground-rule double. Rodriguez scored on the hit, moving him past Mel Ott for 11th place on the career runs list with 1,860. After another walk and foul out, Jeter came up for a club that has had trouble all season getting hits with runners in scoring position. He worked the count full, then grounded a hard single into center field that gave the Yankees a 3-2 lead and brought his cheering parents to their feet in a private box. "Couldn't get the ball down," Minor said. "Couple of guys got walks, and Jeter got a big hit." Sabathia (9-3) gave up seven hits in his 34th career complete game, and first since last July. He walked one, and fanned Chipper Jones and Jason Heyward to finish it. Sabathia beat the Braves last Tuesday, too, and improved to 22-8 lifetime in interleague play. The workhorse had thrown exactly seven innings in his previous five starts, and topped that. The big lefty also became the latest Yankees starter to excel -- the group is 12-1 in June, fueling New York's dominant run. David Ross singled with two outs in the Atlanta sixth, and Bourn hit a grounder through the middle. Jeter made a dive, and the shortstop got a forceout at second. Teixeira hit the Yankees' major league-leading 100th home run in the sixth. Jeter added an RBI single in the seventh off Kris Medlen, and Cano hit his 13th homer in the eighth. Sabathia protected the lead, making it another missed Monday chance for the Braves -- they are 0-10 on Mondays this season. "We see it in spurts. You see it in a couple of guys and then somebody will make a good play or we get into a double play and we don't keep the line moving," Gonzalez said. NOTES: Sitting in the right-center field stands, comedian-actor Cedric the Entertainer led the Bleacher Creatures in their "roll call." Recently, New York Giants center David Baas and NBA player Antawn Jamison also took part in the playful player introductions. "It's a little tradition they're starting here, like having someone sing at Wrigley Field in the seventh-inning stretch," said Cedric, a big Cardinals fan. "Jump in there with the crazies, fire everybody up." ... Braves 1B Freddie Freeman (injured finger) missed his fifth straight game.
