ATLANTA (AP) – Alex Rodriguez tied Reggie Jackson with his 563rd home run and Mariano Rivera earned his 499th career save in the New York Yankees’ 11-7 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Thursday night.

The Yankees have won two straight after a three-game losing streak. New York took sole possession of second place in the AL East and moved four games behind Boston in the AL East.

Rodriguez, who has driven in six runs over his past seven at-bats, gave the Yankees a 10-6 lead with a two-run single in the seventh off reliever Peter Moylan. Rodriguez hit his 10th homer in the first, a solo shot, to tie Jackson for 11th place on baseball’s career list. Rodriguez and Johnny Damon finished with four RBIs.

It was Rodriguez’s first road homer since connecting on the first swing of his season at Baltimore on May 8 and his first multihit game since going 5 for 5 at Texas on May 25.
