As for the pitching, Domingo German allowed three runs, three walks, and struck out six in four and a third innings.
Luckily for him, the New York offense had its way with Sean Newcomb, who entered the game with an 8-2 record and a 2.71 ERA. In this start, he did not make it out of the third inning and gave up five runs to the Yankees.
The Yankees were leading 6-0 in the fifth but five straight unanswered runs by the Braves cut the New York lead to one run.
For New York, Stanton gave his team insurance with a two-run bomb in the eighth to give his closer a three-run lead to protect in the ninth.
With a bigger lead, Aroldis Chapman did his job and nailed down his 24th save of the season.
Current Yankees Record: 55-28
