Quickly reaching “what’s the point” status, the Braves again took an early lead and then blew it, and didn’t mount any sort of challenge to speak of.
The Braves got the first run of the game in the first inning, when Michael Bourn tripled leading off and Martin Prado followed with a groundout to bring him home. In the fifth, Jason Heyward and Andrelton Simmons singled, and with one out Bourn singled Heyward home. And that was all the runs that the Braves would get.
Mike Minor actually had a no-hitter going through four, but allowed a leadoff single to Alex Rodriguez in the fifth and the roof caved in. Three runs on three hits, two walks, and a wild pitch in the fifth, and another run in the sixth on a Mark Teixeira homer made it 4-2. The Yankees got a run in the seventh off of Kris Medlen, and Anthony Varvaro allowed a solo homer in the eighth. The Braves never mounted any real threat.
