The Atlanta Braves survived an extra-inning thriller at Fenway as they defeated the Boston Red Sox 9-7 on Tuesday night. After constant offense from both teams, Austin Riley hit the go-ahead single in the 11th to put Atlanta back in front.
It was a memorable night for lefty Tyler Matzek, who shut the door on the Sox in the home half of the 11th and picked up his first career save. He struck out two and collected a ground ball out.
Tonight, the Braves take on the Red Sox for the final time this regular season. Kyle Wright is set to take the mound against Nick Pivetta. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 ET.
Orlando Arcia is headed to the injured list after suffering a strained hamstring as he rounded first base in the 10th inning. He was helped off the field before Ehire Adrianza replaced him.
