Yankees roll past Braves to snap three-game skid

The New York Yankees (52-27) desperately needed a win on Saturday night, and they got one as they rolled past the Atlanta Braves (42-32), 8-3, to snap a three-game skid. 

After falling behind 1-0 three batters into the game, New York responded in the home half, thanks to Aaron Judge’s two-run blast into the right field seats, his Major League-leading 28th of the season. 

Gleyber Torres doubled home a run, Oswaldo Cabrera had a two-out, two-run single, Judge added a bases-loaded walk, and Trent Grisham drilled his fourth homer of the season after Giancarlo Stanton left the game with left hamstring tightness. 

Marcus Stroman allowed three runs on three hits over 6.2 innings while walking two and striking out six. Michael Tonkin, Luke Weaver, and Phil Bickford combined for 2.1 scoreless. 

The Yankees will try to take two of three from the Braves on Sunday with Nestor Cortes on the mound. The first pitch is set for 1:35 p.m.
