Chipper Jones atoned for a costly error by cutting down the potential tying run at the plate as the Atlanta Braves held on to beat New York 4-3 on Tuesday night, ending the Yankees’ 10-game winning streak.
The Yankees were trying to match their longest winning string in Major League Baseball (MLB) in nearly a half-century. Instead, the Braves threw out two runners at home and won for only the second time in nine games. Jason Heyward singled home the go-ahead run in the sixth inning off Hiroki Kuroda (6-7). Heyward also tripled and scored, and nailed Mark Teixeira at home with a strong throw from right field. Rookie Andrelton Simmons drove in two runs and Jones delivered an RBI double for the slumping Braves.
