Yankees-Braves Final Score: Atlanta Gets By New York, 4-3

The New York Yankees will have to start a new winning streak as the Atlanta Braves snapped their 10-game streak with a 4-3 victory on Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium.

Hiroki Kuroda picked up his sixth loss of the season which brings his record to 6-7 on the year. Kuroda pitched seven full innings while giving up six hits and all four of Atlanta's earned runs in the game. He also walked three Braves batters while striking out six.

Nick Swisher returned to the Yankees lineup after missing two games with a bone bruise in his right leg. He led New York's offense with two hits and two RBI."Give them credit," Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira said. "They had a lot of big plays, they came up big when they needed to."

The Braves broke a 3-3 tie in the sixth. Brian McCann bounced a double over the wall in left-center field to start the inning. A two-out walk to Jones put men on the corners and Jason Heyward, who gunned down Teixeira at home to end the fifth, hit a liner off the New York first baseman's left heel for an infield single that scored McCann.

Atlanta reliever Jonny Venters pitched out of a jam in the seventh to preserve the lead. The first two Yankees reached base, as Curtis Granderson singled and Alex Rodriguez walked. A groundout placed runners on second and third before Teixeira reached on a 5-2 fielder's choice. Venters fanned Raul Ibanez for the third out.

Craig Kimbrel struck out a pair of Yankees in the ninth en route to earning his 20th save of the season.

The final game of the three-game set with Atlanta takes place on Wednesday afternoon with first pitch coming at 1:05 p.m.ET.
