    Didi Gregorius drove in a career-high six runs, Brian McCann hit a three-run homer in his return to Atlanta and the New York Yankees shook off a scoring slump to beat the Braves 15-4 on Friday night.

    The Yankees scored a total of seven runs in losing three of their last four games to fall 1 1/2 games behind first-place Toronto in the AL East. They scored nine runs in the first two innings against the Braves.

    Gregorius had four hits, including a three-run homer in the first inning and a two-run single in the second. McCann, the former longtime Braves catcher, added his three-run homer in the eighth.

    Masahiro Tanaka (10-6) allowed three runs and five hits in seven innings.
