Chipper Jones and Jason Heyward each had an RBI and cut down a run at the plate on defense as the Atlanta Braves snapped the Yankees’ 10 game winning streak, holding off the pinstripes 4-3 on Tuesday night in the Bronx.

Atlanta scored the go-ahead run on Heyward’s sixth inning rocket that bounced off first baseman Mark Teixeira’s foot. It deflected all the way over to Derek Jeter at shortstop, allowing the eventual game winning run to cross the plate.

Shortstop Andrelton Simmons had two hits and two RBI’s helping the Braves end a three game slide.

With the game tied 3-3 and Mark Teixeira at second, Nick Swisher singled to right field but Teixeira was gunned down by Heyward’s relay throw.

Then, down 4-3 with runners on second and third and one-out, Granderson broke for home on Teixeira’s grounder to first. Granderson was tagged out and Raul Ibanez struck out to end the threat.

Eric O’Flaherty tossed a perfect eighth inning, and Craig Kimbrel followed with a perfect inning of his own to collect his 20th save.

Tim Hudson moved to 5-3 after five innings of three runs (2 earned) on four hits and five walks.

Hiroki Kuroda (6-7) was dealt the loss after three straight wins – four earned on six hits over seven innings.
