In your Atlanta Braves Spring Training update, the Braves played to a 5-5 tie with the New York Yankees in 10 innings yesterday at Champion Stadium at ESPN’s Wide World of Sports in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.  Freddie Freeman’s bat stayed hot for the Braves as he hit his fifth home run in eight at-bats in the seventh inning of yesterday’s game.  Jason Heyward also went deep yesterday with a two-run shot in the ninth to tie the game up.  It was a pretty good day for Heyward, who also helped his team out with an excellent catch in the third inning in which he climbed the right-field wall to stop the Yankees’ Raul Ibanez from getting a home run.
