ATLANTA (AP) -- Rookie Tommy Hanson won his third straight start, Brian McCann had two RBIs including a solo homer and the Atlanta Braves threw consecutive shutouts for the first time in four years with a 4-0 victory over the New York Yankees on Tuesday night.
New York managed just four hits and left 12 runners on base as Chien-Ming Wang (0-6) lost his sixth straight start.
In the Yankees' first visit to Turner Field since 2000, Atlanta's pitching staff combined for its first consecutive shutouts since June 21-22, 2005, when it beat Florida by a combined 13-0 score.
Hanson (3-0) allowed four hits and five walks with four strikeouts in 5 1-3 innings.
