Posted: Updated:

KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) - Jason Heyward hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning and Brandon Beachy pitched a spring-high six solid innings as the Atlanta Braves and New York Yankees tied 5-5 in 10 innings on Wednesday.

Yankees starter Hiroki Kuroda had his longest outing, too, allowing two runs in seven innings. He struck out six.

Eric Chavez had three hits with a double and three RBIs for New York, boosting his average to .235.

Heyward lifted his average to .205 with two hits. Freddie Freeman also homered for Atlanta.

The Yankees led 5-3 going into the ninth, but Freeman walked and Heyward homered to deep right off George Kontos.
