New York Yankees 0 — Atlanta Braves 4   The second of two games today ended the same way the day game did, a 4-0 shutout to the Atlanta Braves.   The Yankees offense was held to just three hits in tonight’s game. Eduardo Nunez, Matt Diaz, and Dan Johnson managed to succeed in getting the hits. Outfielders competing for a spot on the Opening Day Roster, Ben Francisco and Melky Mesa, both went hitless with a strikeout.   David Phelps started tonight’s game and lasted five innings. Over seven hits, Phelps gave up four runs and struck out six with one walk. Jason Heyward, Justin Upton, and Juan Francisco got to Phelps in his last inning of work. Francisco took Phelps deep with a two-run home run to right field.   Win -Paul Maholm Loss – David Phelps   Notables Yankees *Eduardo Nunez – 1 for 2 *Dan Johnson – 1 for 3 Braves *Juan Francisco – 2 for 3, R, 2-Run Home Run (4) in the 5th, 2 RBI (8) *Justin Upton – 2 for 3, R, RBI (9)
