Granderson's homer lifts Yankees past Braves, 3-2

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Curtis Granderson had a go-ahead two-run homer in the sixth inning and the streaking New York Yankees beat the Atlanta Braves 3-2 on Wednesday night to complete their second straight three-game sweep.

Hiroki Kuroda (6-6) gave up two runs in six innings. He stranded runners in scoring position in the second, third and fourth innings before giving up Brian McCann's two-run shot in the fifth. Granderson answered an inning later with his 19th homer.

The Yankees have surged to first place in the AL East with sweeps of the Mets and Braves.

Rafael Soriano gave up a single to Chipper Jones with two outs in the ninth before capping his 11th save by getting Jason Heyward to hit a popup to second base.
