New York Yankees vs. Atlanta Braves – Box Score – June 23, 2009 – ESPN

Another day, another shutout. Whatever works, I guess. Tommy Hanson was “effectively wild” again — maybe a little less wild. He cruised through the first, but was in trouble most of the rest of the night, allowing at least two baserunners in four of the next five innings. But he got out of it each time until the sixth, when Moylan came in and got Jeter on a double play. Hanson wound up with four strikeouts (three of the same guy, Posada) and just four hits, but five walks.

The Braves jumped in front in the third. Escobar singled with two out, then stole second and went to third on a terrible throw. Chipper walked, and McCann doubled off the wall, scoring Escobar, though Chipper (as is always the case with the Braves) couldn’t get home from first on the two-out double. It didn’t matter, as ACHE came through with a gapper to score both baserunners.

Moylan handled the Yankees in order in the seventh, and Gonzalez dominated them in the eighth. In the bottom of the inning, Chipper just missed a homer, then McCann didn’t, knocking it over the right field wall to make it 4-0. Soriano, in the non-save/Atlanta Save situation, walked one with one out but pitched around it. (Actually, he seemed to have the hitter, Damon, struck out; the Braves could not buy a borderline called third strike tonight.)

The Braves had seven hits, three by McCann and two by Yunel, and none by Francoeur, who sucks.
