Corey Klopper (0-2) did his best to keep New York in the fight. His most memorable start to date was with the Yankees.
However, “Bronx Bombers” seemed oblivious to the title and fell for the sixth time in seven matches, with a lineup full of stars that did not wake up.
Anderson (1-0) set the Yankees with four hits and the same number of walks in 6 2/3 innings. He hit four when he faced the club, who also defeated him during their major league debut the previous season.
The 22-year-old’s right hand hit 97 throws one night when the temperature dropped to 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
New York loaded the bases off Anderson with two directors in seventh base, but faithful AJ Minter forced DJ LeMahieu to land on third base, ending the half.
Will Smith was allowed to land in the ninth slide, but finished a five-strike mission.
The Yankees have hit 0.163 in their last seven matches, averaging 2.57 points per game.
For Braves, Venezuelan Ihair Adrianza scored 2-0 with the RBI, and Pablo Sandoval scored 4-1 in one half. Marcel Ozona 4-0 with two RBIs. Cuban Guillermo Heredia 2-0.
For the Yankees, Colombian Geo Urchila 3-1. Venezuelans Rougned Odor 1-0, Torres 4-1. Dominican Gary Sanchez 3-0.
