ATLANTA (AP) — Boston hitters wore down Atlanta starter Sean Newcomb with their patient approach.It was a familiar strategy in yet another interleague win for the best team in the majors.Steve Pearce had three hits and three RBIs Mike Matheny Jersey , Rick Porcello allowed two hits in five innings, and the Red Sox beat the Braves 5-1 on Tuesday night for their second straight win in a matchup of division leaders.Atlanta pitchers walked nine, including five by starter Sean Newcomb (11-8), who matched his season high.“There definitely were some close pitches where they were being picky,” Newcomb said when asked about the disciplined approach of Boston’s hitters.It was Boston’s fourth game this season with at least nine walks, the most in the American League. The Red Sox are undefeated in 23 games in which they have drawn six or more walks.“Today he had that fastball up and away early,” said Boston manager Alex Cora of Newcomb. “But then we were disciplined enough to lay off. … We got to their bullpen.”Newcomb lasted only 4 1/3 innings, allowing three runs and four hits.The Red Sox (96-44) have won 20 more games than the Braves (76-62). Boston has not lost any of its last 12 series against NL teams and has won 24 of its last 28 interleague games.Porcello (16-7) allowed his only run on Kurt Suzuki’s second-inning homer . He struck out five and walked one.“I think even though they hit one home run, not giving up the big hit and not giving up free passes to guys I didn’t want to give free passes to was the difference tonight,” Porcello said.Porcello improved to 10-3 on the road this year. He had been 0-2 in his previous three starts overall since an Aug. 14 win at Philadelphia.The Braves’ lead over the second-place Phillies in the NL East was cut to three games.Newcomb got into a bases-loaded, no-out jam in the fourth. He forced in the tying run with a walk to Xander Bogaerts, Pearce hit a run-scoring single off Shane Carle and Eduardo Nunez hit an RBI groundout for a 3-1 lead.Pearce hit a two-run single in the sixth off Luke Jackson after the Red Sox loaded the bases for the third straight inning.HITTING ZEROSInfielder Brandon Phillips http://www.stlouiscardinalsteamshop.com/authentic-red-schoendienst-jersey , whose contract was selected from Triple-A Pawtucket, is the first player in Red Sox history to wear No. 0. He wore No. 4 in his career with Cincinnati and last season with the Braves, but that number is retired by the Red Sox for Joe Cronin. Phillips, whose major league salary is $600,000, may start on Wednesday, according to Cora.NEWCOMB’S SLUMPNewcomb failed to last five innings for the third time in five starts. The five walks were the biggest problem. Asked about the left-hander pitching into jams, manager Brian Snitker said, “That’s an understatement.”Newcomb has thrown a career-high 149 1/3 innings in his second season but said he hasn’t hit a wall. “I felt good. I came out pretty strong,” he said.PROMISING DEBUTKyle Wright, a 22-year-old right-hander selected by Atlanta with the fifth pick in the 2017 amateur draft, pitched two hitless innings and allowed only a walk in his major league debut. He struck out his first two batters Enos Slaughter Jersey , Jackie Bradley Jr. and Sandy Leon, in the seventh.TRAINER’S ROOMRed Sox: LHP David Price (bruised left wrist) was confirmed to start Friday’s opening game of a home series against Houston. … 3B Rafael Devers (strained left hamstring) was activated from the 10-day disabled list. … LHP Chris Sale (left shoulder inflammation) could return in Boston’s upcoming homestand. He has been out since Aug. 15.Braves: SS Dansby Swanson left after he was hit on his helmet by an 85-mph slider from Porcello in the second inning. Swanson was knocked to the ground but rose quickly before being examined by a member of the Braves’ medical staff. Snitker said Swanson had ringing in his ears but “passed all the tests” and will not be placed in concussion protocol. Charlie Culberson entered as a pinch-runner and remained in the game at shortstop.UP NEXTRed Sox RHP Hector Velazquez (7-2, 3.24) will make his seventh start of the season when the three-game series ends Wednesday. He has made 33 relief appearances. Braves RHP Mike Foltynewicz (10-9, 2.80) allowed one run and three hits in seven innings during a 7-1 win at Boston on May 27 in his only previous appearance against the Red Sox. BALTIMORE (AP) — After making a guest appearance in the starting rotation, it’s back to the bullpen for Sonny Gray.The New York Yankees right-hander can take consolation in knowing he’s still got the talent to effectively go deep in a game.Gray took a three-hitter into the seventh inning, and New York beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-1 Saturday night for a doubleheader sweep.In the opener, rookie Miguel Andujar homered and had four RBIs, J.A. Happ won his fifth straight start and New York rolled to a 10-3 victory.Gray (10-8) gave up three hits, a walk and struck out seven in 6 1/3 innings. The right-hander had been exiled to the bullpen after yielding seven runs in a loss to Baltimore on Aug. 1.“His slider was really good today, noticeably different than the last time we faced him,” Orioles first baseman Trey Mancini said. “When that’s on, he’s a really tough guy to face.”Pressed into service as a starter because a June 3 rainout created this split doubleheader http://www.stlouiscardinalsteamshop.com/authentic-chris-carpenter-jersey , Gray allowed only one runner past second base in helping the Yankees notch their seventh win in eight games.What now for the former Oakland star?“He’ll probably go back in the bullpen,” manager Aaron Boone said. “Tonight we needed a big start, we got it. I’m sure it’s a role that continues to evolve.”Gray has a strong opinion on how he should be used, and points to this performance as proof.“If I can go out and throw the ball like that, I can get anybody out,” he declared. “I’m one of the best starting pitchers in this league and I truly believe that.”Austin Romine homered, had three hits and scored three runs for the Yankees, who led 4-0 after four innings against Andrew Cashner (4-12).Andujar had two hits in each game to raise his batting average to .300. He leads AL rookies in batting, multihit games (43) and RBIs (70).Baltimore has lost seven straight to fall 56 games under .500 (37-93). It’s the seventh time this season the Orioles have endured a skid of at least six games.After watching his team struggle to score in both games, Baltimore manager Buck Showalter said, “Offensively it’s been a struggle. We scored, what Kolten Wong Jersey , four runs in 18 innings? Give a lot of credit to their pitching, but that and being consistent defensively has been a real challenge for us.”New York hit four home runs in the first game and got another solid outing from Happ, who struck out nine over six innings.After driving in a first-inning run in the opener with a groundout, Andujar put the Yankees up 5-2 in the third with a three-run shot off Jimmy Yacabonis (0-2).Brett Gardner, Gleyber Torres and Aaron Hicks hit solo shots for the Yankees.Teammate Aaron Judge was a unanimous pick as AL Rookie of the Year in 2017, and Andujar just might make it two in a row for New York.“At the end of it all, if it happens, it happens,” Andujar said through a translator. “We are trying accomplish something bigger here than individual awards.”Giancarlo Stanton just missed joining the long-ball party. Seeking his 33rd homer of the season, Stanton was poised to break into a trot around the bases when his sixth-inning drive to center field ended up in the glove of a leaping Cedric Mullins, who reached over the 7-foot wall and snagged the ball in the webbing.Happ (15-6) is 5-0 with a 2.37 ERA in five starts since coming from Toronto in a July 26 trade.Luis Cessa worked the final three innings of the opener for his first major league save.After Renato Nunez singled in two runs for a 2-1 lead, the 23-year-old Andujar put the Yankees ahead for good with his 21st home run. Ten of those drives have either tied the game or given the Yankees the lead.TRAINER’S ROOMYankees: C Gary Sanchez (groin strain) went 0 for 3 with a walk for the Gulf Coast League Yankees on Saturday. “I’m excited for him to start his trek back up Trevor Rosenthal Jersey ,” Boone said. If all goes well, Sanchez will join Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to start a minor league rehab assignment early next week. He has been out since July 24.Orioles: RHP Alex Cobb has allowed seven runs in his last five starts while coping with a lingering blister. Showalter lauded trainer Brian Ebel and his staff, noting, “It’s been impressive to watch how they handle it.”UP NEXTYankees: Luis Severino (16-6, 3.28 ERA) strives to take over the major league lead in wins, and New York goes for a four-game sweep on Sunday night.Orioles: Struggling Dylan Bundy (7-12, 5.31 ERA) has yielded 29 hits, 22 runs and six homers in his last three starts and is winless since July 29.
