It didn’t take the Boston Red Sox long to jump out to an early lead against the Atlanta Braves.
Boston got right to work in the first inning of Tuesday’s game at Truist Park with back-to-back singles from Kiké Hernández and Alex Verdugo. Braves pitcher Tucker Davidson settled down and got the next two outs, but then he had to face Rafael Devers.
But that wouldn’t be all as Hunter Renfroe took an 0-2 pitch deep to give the Red Sox a four-run lead.
Not a bad way to start the game.
