Braves Vs. Yankees: Andrelton Simmons Drives In 2 Runs In 4-3 win

Andrelton Simmons went 2-for-4 with two RBIs as the Braves took the second game of the series against the Yankees by a 4-3 score.

Tim Hudson got the start and gave up three runs (two earned) over five innings. Hudson allowed just four hits and struck out five, but also walked five.

The Yankees opened the scoring in the second on a two-RBI double from Nick Swisher in the bottom of the second. Simmons drove in a run on a groundout in the following frame. In the fourth, Chipper Jones tied the game with a double, and Simmons gave the Braves a 3-2 lead with an RBI-single. New York tied the game on a fielding error by Jones in the bottom of the fourth.

In the sixth, Jason Heyward beat out an infield single with two outs, allowing Brian McCann to score what would end up as the winning run. Craig Kimbrel pitched a perfect ninth to record the save.
