June 18, 2012 at 10:23 PM

NEW YORK, June 18 (UPI) -- CC Sabathia fanned 10 in a complete-game triumph Monday and the New York Yankees won their 10th straight with a 6-2 interleague victory over Atlanta.

Sabathia (9-3) hurled his career 34th complete game, yielding a pair of runs on seven hits while issuing just one walk.

He was backed by three RBI from Derek Jeter, whose two-run single in the fifth inning erased a 2-1 Yankees deficit. The New York shortstop added a run-scoring hit in the seventh while Robinson Cano and Mark Teixeira socked solo homers for the Yankees, who lengthened their American League East lead to 2 1/2 games over Baltimore.

The Braves' Mike Minor (3-5) absorbed the loss, surrendering four runs on four hits over 5 2/3 innings, as Atlanta dropped the first of a three-game interleague set.

Michael Bourn went 2-for-4 with an RBI for the Braves, who fell for the seventh time in eight games.
