LIVE UPDATES 

First inning

Nothing doing for either side here in the first. Quick innings for Anderson and Kluber.

Second inning

We're still scoreless, but each team pushes across their first hits of the ball game. It was a hard-hit single to center for Gleyber Torres on the Yankees' side.

Fourth inning

Kluber is absolutely rolling, throwing four scoreless with the one hit and one strikeout. Anderson is matching him, though. New York has just two hits.

Fifth inning

Kluber's tremendous start came to an end here. After a Pablo Sandoval leadoff single, Kluber walked three of the next five batters he faced. A sacrifice fly from Adrianza brings home the first run of the game. Kluber exits with the bases loaded and two outs.

Nick Nelson comes in and walks the first batter he faces, pushing in a second run. He struck out the next man up to get out of the inning, but the Yankees are now down two runs.

Seventh inning

A bloop single, error and bunt lead to an RBI fielder's choice to put Atlanta up 3-0. 

New York loaded the bases in the bottom half, but couldn't cash in as LeMahieu grounds out to end the frame. Then, to make matters worse, Gio Urshela got taken out of the game due to lower back tightness. 

Ninth inning

It's 4-0. Austin Riley sneaks a solo homer over the right-field wall off Brooks Kriske

FINAL: Yankees 1, Braves 4

Clint Frazier makes sure the Yankees don't get shutout, poking an RBI single over Freddie Freeman's head. Still, the offense continues to struggle as New York had only five hits tonight. The Yankees have now lost nine of their last 12 and have a 6-11 record.

Next up, the Yankees travel to Cleveland to take on the Indians for four games. Domingo Germán makes the start on Thursday night. Appreciate you following along as always and we'll see you back here next time.
