THE BRONX — New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone has made three changes to the starting lineup of his slumping team against Atlanta.

He has inserted first baseman Mike Ford and left fielder Mike Tauchman and is giving Brett Gardner his second start this season in center field.

DJ LeMahieu moved back to second base from first. Center fielder Aaron Hicks, left fielder Clint Frazier and second baseman Rougned Odor moved to the bench.

The Yankees have lost five straight games to drop to 5-10 for their worst start since 1997.
