Giancarlo Stanton homered and drove in three runs to lead the New York Yankees’ 10th straight win that they won 5-1 on Monday to cool down the stormy Atlanta Braves.
The Yankees ended leader Atlanta’s nine-game winning streak, which was the first meeting in nearly 120 years between teams that have won at least nine games in a row.
Stanton homered in the second off Huascar Ynoa (4-3) and tied the game 1-1 in sixth with a two-run double and two outs.
Gary Sanchez secured New York with a two-out hit in the eighth, a two-run single.
Jordan Montgomery (5-5) worked to pass four walks in five innings, limiting the Braves to just two hits – including a home run by Dansby Swanson.
The Yankees bullpen took over at that point. Nicaraguan Jonathan Loaisiga pitched two scoreless innings and struck out four. Dominican Wandy Peralta worked to overcome a pair of hits in the eighth and Aroldis Chapman finished Atlanta with a ninth of 1-2-3. (MLB in Spanish)
