Braves Take Down Yankees, 10-5

NEW YORK (AP) — Jason Heyward hit two of a record nine homers at the new Yankee Stadium and the Atlanta Braves outslugged the New York Yankees for a 10-5 victory in the sweltering heat Wednesday.

Freddie Freeman, Martin Prado, Heyward and David Ross all connected off Phil Hughes (7-6) to build a 6-1 lead on a sticky, 94-degree afternoon.

Michael Bourn stole what could have been another home run from Jayson Nix after missing an earlier opportunity for a try at a leaping grab.

Alex Rodriguez hit his 640th career homer, and Robinson Cano, Derek Jeter and Eric Chavez all hit long balls against Tommy Hanson (8-4). The Yankees managed little else in their second straight loss after a 10-game winning streak.
