We recap a disappointing Independence Day for Atlanta sports.
Yankees 6, Braves 2
Atlanta got behind the eight ball early in this game, falling behind 4-0 by the third inning. The Braves did have a few chances to climb back into the game, but no comeback really materialized, and the Yankees won the game 6-2 and the series 2-1. Ozzie Albies led the Braves with three hits on the afternoon.
The Braves will continue this difficult road trip tonight with a contest against the Brewers.
FC Dallas 3, Atlanta United 2
This was, in short, a game that Atlanta United has no excuses for losing. They carried a 2-1 lead into the eightieth minute, before Tesho Akindele scored twice in a ten-minute span to give FC Dallas the victory.
Josef Martínez scored United’s two goals. The club’s next game will come this Saturday in Philadelphia.
The Braves will look to get back to get back to their winning ways in Milwaukee at 8:10 PM.
The Hawks will continue Utah summer league action against the Jazz at 9:00 PM ET.
