The last time the Yankees were in Atlanta, they turned their season around in a series that many thought was the beginning of their 2009 championship run.
The Yankees entered the second game of the series with a loss the night before to Atlanta and owners of a 38-32 record.
After trailing 1-0 and not having a baserunner for five innings in game two on June 24, 2009, Brett Gardner worked a walk.
After being picked off, Joe Girardi had a tirade on the field after the umpire got the call wrong. Girardi was ejected and Francisco Cervelli followed the Girardi show by hitting his first major league home run and igniting the Yankees dugout.
It seemed like the Yankees never looked back that season.
They went on to win the World Series and that game in Atlanta seemed like the spark the team needed.
This season, both teams are going to be playoff-caliber teams so another trip to Atlanta should provide fans with more fireworks.
