''The guy is having an unbelievable year. ... He checks all the boxes.'' Snitker said Marcell Ozuna, who had three hits and drove in two runs, also deserves consideration.Freeman was given a rare day off from starting before walking as a pinch-hitter in the ninth. He said he was looking for a fastball from Springs in the 11th and was ready when it came. After a rain-delayed game against Miami on Thursday night, Freeman prevented the Braves from playing deep into another evening.''I was just trying to send everyone home,'' Freeman said.The Red Sox are 0-4 against Atlanta this season, including a three-game sweep in Boston.''They battled great,'' Red Sox manager Roenicke said. ''Get behind, they come back, kept doing it, so offense, I thought we did a great job. We just didn't pitch as well in the late innings when we got the lead. Everything else I thought was good. It's a shame to lose a game.'' Alex Verdugo's sacrifice fly off Shane Greene (1-0) drove in Rafael Devers in the top of the 11th, giving Boston a 7-6 lead.Kevin Plawecki had three hits, including a tiebreaking single in Boston's two-run 10th.
