Farrell Ejected, Sox Lose
Joe Kelly had one of his better outings of the season but it was not enough as the Atlanta Braves scored late to beat the Boston Red Sox 5-2.After tying the game in the bottom of the 6th inning the Braves would add two more in the 7th. Nick Markakis singled in the go-ahead run before Sox pitcher Tommy Layne issued a bases loaded walk that pushed in an insurance run.
Manager John Farrell was ejected in the 6ht inning when he thought Ciriaco swung and missed a pitch that was called a check swing by the umpires. Brock Holt and Pablo Sandoval were the only Boston players with multiple hits in the game.
The Sox will try to earn a split in the 4-game home and home series when they play tonight in Atlanta.
