Sparked by Derek Jeter’s two-out, two-run single, the Yankees pushed their winning streak to 10 games tonight, beating the Braves 6-2 in front of a loud, packed Yankee Stadium. Through the first four innings, the Yankees were again shut down by Atlanta starter Mike Minor, but Jeter’s go-ahead single was part of a three-run fifth inning. Mark Teixeira added a home run in the sixth, Jeter drove in another run in the seventh and Robinson Cano went deep in the eighth. CC Sabathia picked up his ninth win by pitching a complete game, his first of the season. He struck out 10.
