NEW YORK (AP) -- Jason Heyward hit two of a record nine homers at the new Yankee Stadium and the Atlanta Braves outslugged the New York Yankees for a 10-5 victory in the sweltering heat Wednesday. Freddie Freeman, Martin Prado, Heyward and David Ross all connected off Phil Hughes (7-6) to build a 6-1 lead on a sticky, 94-degree afternoon. Michael Bourn stole what might've been another home run from Jayson Nix after missing an earlier opportunity for a try at a leaping grab. Alex Rodriguez hit his 640th career homer, and Robinson Cano, Derek Jeter and Eric Chavez all hit long balls against Tommy Hanson (8-4). The Yankees managed little else in their second straight loss after a 10-game winning streak. The Yankees got within a run at 6-5 on Curtis Granderson's RBI single in the seventh but Rodriguez ended the inning with a double-play grounder. In the eighth, Freeman hit an RBI single and Heyward a two-run shot off Boone Logan to help Atlanta pull away for its third win i...

Heyward bright spot for struggling Braves

Jason Heyward has teased and taunted us with his talent for more than two years. He can hit home runs that are tracked on radar. He can outrun line drives to his left, right, in front of him or over his head. He can throw out any runner at any base. He can't leap tall buildings in a single bound, but his jumping ability and long arms have been known to snare balls destined...

Braves 4, Yankees 3

NEW YORK -- Jason Heyward's bat and arm were enough to overcome his feet as he helped the Atlanta Braves end the New York Yankees' 10-game winning streak Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium. The Braves right fielder picked up two hits, scored a run, cost his team one on the bases, took one from the Yankees in the field, and drove in the eventual winning run in Atlanta's...

Braves end Yankees' 10-game win streak

NEW YORK (AP) -- Chipper Jones atoned for a costly error by cutting down the potential tying run at the plate and the Atlanta Braves held on to end the Yankees' 10-game winning streak, beating New York 4-3 Tuesday night. The Yankees were trying to match their longest winning string in nearly a half-century. Instead, the Braves threw out two runners at home and won for only the...

Cano No Help This Year

Compared to the last few seasons where the Yankees have become accustomed to the consistent production from the bat of Robinson Cano, there hasn’t been too much of the same on display this season. His .299 batting average, 14 home runs, and 33 RBIs that pad his stats this year are a bit misleading, because [...]

BP Unfiltered: Yankees Fans Gloating About Home Runs: The Sequel by Ben Lindbergh

Interesting things happen when home runs are hit to the short porch in right field at Yankee Stadium. In Game 4 of the 2010 ALCS, Robinson Cano hit a home run there, just beyond the grasp of Rangers right fielder Nelson Cruz. That home run made the score 1-0, Yankees. The Rangers went on to win the game 10-3, so the home run itself was meaningless. (Well, it might have had meaning...

Braves need rotation answers with Beachy out

The Braves pounded five home runs in their victory over the Yankees on Wednesday, but they were hit harder by the news that Brandon Beachy will need Tommy John surgery. Beachy and the organization were optimistic that surgery wouldn't be needed, but remained realistic in the fact that the ligament tear in his right elbow likely would have to be repaired. Word came down late...

A-Rod will be A-ok

Alex Rodriguez has been a mainstay in the middle of the lineup for his entire career, lengthening orders and delivering fatal blows to opposing teams.
