TAMPA, FL - Tommy Hanson had his third consecutive solid start, allowing one run and five hits in four innings as the Atlanta Braves beat a New York Yankees spilt squad 6-2 on Friday.
Hanson had given up two hits over five scoreless innings in his previous two outings. Chipper Jones had a RBI single and Jordan Schafer homered for Atlanta.
New York starter Phil Hughes was touched for two runs and seven hits in four innings. Yankees captain Derek Jeter went 1 for 3, and is hitting .333
overall (8 for 24). He is working on eliminating the stride of his front foot while batting.
Yogi Berra was back at the ballpark, one day after he tripped and fell in the clubhouse while going to get a bowl of a soup.
