Yankees Beat Braves, Win Streak At 10
C.C. Sabathia threw a complete game while striking out ten and Derek Jeter had three, two-out RBI’s as the Yankees extended their win streak to ten games with a 6-2 victory over the Braves in the Bronx on Monday night.
Trailing 2-0 in the bottom of the fifth, Russell Martin’s RBI-ground rule double that scored Alex Rodriguez put the pinstripes on the board. With two outs and runners on second and third, Jeter singled to drive in Robinson Cano and Martin, putting the Yankes up 3-2.
Mark Teixeira and Cano each added solo-homers for insurance.
Mike Minor (3-5) lost his second straight start, both against the Yankees.
Sabathia moved to 9-3 and has won four of his last five starts.
The Yankees (41-25) have won 20 of their last 24, including 10 straight.
