The Sports Kings: Yankees Down Braves 6-2…
CC Sabathia struck out 10, Derek Jeter drove in three runs and the New York Yankees won their 10th straight game, beating the Atlanta Braves 6-2 Monday night.
Mark Teixeira and Robinson Cano hit solo home runs as the Yankees matched their 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.
