Sox Rally Again, Streak To 6-3 Win Over Braves

While it wasn't technically the game-winner, it sure felt like it. Jackie Bradley, Jr. slashed a two-run single in the seventh to push Boston's lead to three runs in a comeback 6-3 win over Atlanta. The Braves intentionally walked David Ross to get to Bradley (an even rarer occurrence than A-Rod telling the truth), and the kid came through with a vengeance. The lead run had earlier been delivered by a Jonny Gomes bloop to right after David Ortiz blooped in the tying run. Luck, it appears, is turning in favor of your Carmine Hose. Jon Lester was just good enough to get the win—but clearly not the dominant ace we saw in the 2013 post-season. Dustin Pedroia had another amazing night, going 3-4 with a run scored and an RBI. The same teams meet tonight at Fenway for a rare 'home-and-home' series.
