Although he found himself in occasional trouble, Eduardo Rodriguez gave the Boston Red Sox an opportunity to win Friday night against the Atlanta Braves.

Rodriguez allowed just two runs over 5 2/3 innings, striking out seven while allowing six hits and walking three. After recovering from an injury sustained last season, E-Rod has looked strong in 2018, and the Red Sox now are 9-1 when the southpaw starts following the 6-2 victory on Friday.
