BRONX, NEW YORK, June 21- It was a hot and ugly outing for the Yankees yesterday as the 10-5 loss to the Braves left fans simmering. 
Atlanta hit four home runs off the Yanks.
In addition to the home run rally, Yankee players Robinson Cano and Nick Swisher were steamed at the home plate umpire’s calls. In two incidents the Yankee sluggers let their emotions boil over with the ump.

Summer (Con) Jobs

By Dan Gesslein
BRONX, NEW YORK, June 20- It’s summer time and while most teens are getting part-time burger flipping jobs for extra cash, cops say a pair of teens instead are ripping people off. 
Investigators said the pair robbed a mother’s purse while she was caring for her baby. At around 8 p.m. on May 20, a 25-year-old woman was walking down the stairs of the subway platform of the D line subway train at 196th Street and the Grand Concourse. The pair approached the woman carrying her child’s stroller. While the girl distracted her, the boy stole the woman’s purse which was draped over the baby’s stroller.
The pair struck again at around 7 p.m. on May 28. Inside the lobby of 2770 Briggs Avenue the pair approached a 47-year-old woman. This time the female thief snatched the chain off the woman’s neck and the pair fled. 
Police released surveillance video from the subway robbery. The female suspect is Hispanic, 15 to 17 years of age. She has blond and red hair, light skin and was seen wearing a pink and peach shirt and capri pants. Her accomplice is a black male between the ages of 15 and 17. He has a dark complexion, short black hair and was seen wearing a black T-shirt and jeans.

Anyone with information is urged to call CRIMESTOPPERS at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls are confidential.

Streaking Ends for Yankees

Nothing seemed to go right for the Yanks as their 10-game win streak came to an end last night with a 4-3 loss to the Atlanta Braves. 
Two runners were thrown out at the plate. A ground ball hit off Mark Teixeira’s heel. 
The question now is whether the loss was just a bad night or the beginning of problems for the Yankees.
