Video: Tyler Flowers homers as Braves knock off Red Sox

Flowers’ homer helps Braves to 7-1 win over Red Sox.

MLB: Atlanta Braves at Boston Red Sox Brian Fluharty-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Braves avoided a sweep on Sunday with a 7-1 win over the Boston Red Sox. The victory is damped a bit however thanks to a potential serious injury to Ronald Acuña Jr. that he suffered while running out an infield hit in the seventh inning.

The Braves struck early against Chris Sale with the big blow coming off the bat of Tyler Flowers.

Charlie Culberson got the start at third on Sunday and delivered this run scoring single in the fifth.

Freddie Freeman blew the game wide open later in the fifth with a two-run double to right center to put the Braves up 6-0.

Ozzie Albies had a tough day at the plate on Sunday but flashed the leather going up really high to rob Xander Bogaerts of a hit.

Mike Foltynewicz was the story in this game however as he allowed three hits and one run over seven innings. He carried a no-hitter into the sixth and struck out seven while walking three. Folty has now allowed two earned runs or less in 10 of 11 starts this season.
