Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - Curtis Granderson hit a go-ahead two-run homer in the sixth inning Wednesday night and the New York Yankees finished up their second straight three-game sweep with a 3-2 win over the Atlanta Braves.
The Braves stranded 13 runners on base, including two in the eighth inning when Cody Eppley got Martin Prado to ground into a double play and one in the ninth after Chipper Jones hit a two-out single and Rafael Soriano retired Jason Heyward on a pop out to end the game.
Derek Jeter had two hits and two runs scored and Hiroki Kuroda (6-6) struck out eight batters in six innings, giving up two runs on nine hits and two walks to remain unbeaten in his last four starts.
Boone Logan, Eppley and Soriano held the Braves scoreless the rest of the way as the Yankees improved to 9-1 in their last 10 games and 16-4 in their last 20. They were coming off a three-game sweep of the Mets.
Brian McCann hit a two-run homer for the Braves, who have dropped four in a row after a six-game winning streak.
Tim Hudson (4-3) went six innings for the Braves, allowing three runs on six hits while striking out eight and walking none. He was throwing on extra rest after a 108-pitch shutout of the Marlins last week and because of a sore left ankle.
