The Yankees lost a wild one in the Bronx Wednesday afternoon when those on hand sat in 90-degree weather and watched nine homers sail into the seats. Phil Hughes made up for a no-homer game last week with four today. Here is the full recap and graph.
Here are the turning points of the game:
- The first big turning point game in the 1st inning when the Braves started things off with a single, fly out, foul out, single, and then home run by Freddie Freeman that broke it open 3-0.
- Homers by Alex Rodriguez and Robinson Cano were big in the 6th, but Curtis Granderson‘s RBI-single made it 6-5 in the 7th and gave them a chance to win. That was until A-Rod bounced into an inning ending double play with two men on.
- Martin Prado opened the 8th with a double to knock Cory Wade out of the game before Boone Logan came in got a ground out, intentionally walked a batter, and then gave up an RBI-ground out to Freeman and a 2-run shot to Heyward as the Braves pushed the lead to 9-5.
