Jason Heyward began Wednesday batting .190 with a .250 on-base percentage for the spring, but by the end of the day there was plenty of reason for the Braves and their right fielder to feel good about the direction he seemed headed.

He's had games recently that didn't look as good in the boxscore as on the field, but Wednesday he got results.

Heyward had two hits including a tying two-run homer in the ninth inning, and prevented three runs with a home run-saving catch in the third inning and a running catch in shallow center for the last out of the Braves' 5-5, 10-inning tie with the New York Yankees.
