Braves Prospect homers in debut, Sox Lose...Again 8-4

Boston — Top Atlanta prospect Vaughn Grissom homered onto Lansdowne Street in his major league debut to lead the Braves to an 8-4 victory over the Boston Red Sox.

Marcell Ozuna also homered for Atlanta.

Grissom was called up earlier in the day from Double-A.

The 21-year-old Grissom hit the first pitch he saw in the seventh inning over the Green Monster and the seats above it and onto the street below for a two-run drive and his first big league hit.

Grissom singled and scored in the ninth.

Atlanta completed a two-game sweep.

The Red Sox lost their fourth straight game, and their sixth of seven.
