ATLANTA -- The series opener between the Red Sox and Braves was interrupted by a rain delay, with the umpires calling for the tarp before the Sox could take the field for the home half of the sixth inning. The teams were tied, 6-6, at the time of the delay, with David Ortiz having knotted things up with a three-run homer in the fifth inning. The Sox had fought back from a five-run deficit thanks to the five-run fifth, with Dustin Pedroia coming through with a two-run, two-out single. Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz struggled once again, this time allowing six runs over three innings, walking a career high seven batter while throwing 88 pitches. For updates on the game, click here.
