The Braves got another shutout pitching performance from their starter and their bullpen last night as they beat the New York Yankees 4-0 at Turner field in the opening gamed of a three game series.
Rookie righthander Tommy Hanson allowed just four hits over 5.1 innings to earn his third win in as many decisions. Peter Moylan, Mike Gonzalez and Rafael Soriano finished up and did not allow a hit.
Brian McCann sparked the offense with three hits, including his seventh homer, and he had two RBIs.
The Braves are off to a 2-0 start on this ten game homestand, both shutout victories. The series continues tonight. Kenoshin Kawakami will start for the Braves against the Yankees Joba Chamberlain.
