With on-field temperatures reaching 100-degrees, the Braves and Yankees combined for a record nine home runs at the new Yankee Stadium, but it was Atlanta who walked away with a 10-5 victory, taking two of three in the Bronx.

Jason Heyward smacked two of Atlanta’s five homers – a solo blast in the fourth and a two run shot in the eighth.

Martin Prado, David Ross and Freddy Freeman all tagged Phil Hughes (7-6) for round trippers as Hughes was pulled in the fifth inning after giving up six runs on six hits – including four HR’s.

The Yankees got four homers of their own off Braves starter Tommy Hanson – solo-jacks from Derek Jeter, Eric Chavez, Alex Rodriguez and Robinson Cano.

Curtis Granderson added an RBI single in the seventh cut the deficit to 6-5.

But Atlanta got three in the eighth, including Heyward’s second homer, a two-run blast off of Boone Logan, and added Martin Prado RBI sinlge in the ninth.

Hanson (8-4) made it through five innings, allowing four runs on five hits with two walks and five K’s.

The Yankees (41-27) have lost two straight after a season-best ten game winning streak. They have Thursday off before the start of the season’s second installment of the Subway Series, beginning Friday night at Citi Field.
