KEY GAME INFORMATION
ATLANTA: 2017 72-90, third place
MANAGER Brian Snitker (third season)
ADDITIONS: RHP Brandon McCarthy, RHP Anibal Sanchez, LHP Scott Kazmir, INF Charlie Culberson, OF Preston Tucker, OF Ronald Acuna, 3B Austin Riley, OF Jeff Decker, 2B Christian Colon, RHP Shane Carle
SUBTRACTIONS: OF Matt Kemp, RHP R.A. Dickey, 3B Adonis Garcia, 1B Matt Adams, INF Jace Peterson, RHP Jason Motte
OUTLOOK: Teheran, Foltynewicz and Newcomb have provided reasons this spring to believe they can improve their 2017 numbers. For a change, the spring spotlight was on a position player; Acuna was hitting .432 with 4 home runs, 11 RBI and 4 steals when he was sent to minor league camp. The move involving the 20-year-old top prospect was expected. It was made to maintain an extra full season of contractual control down the road, but Acuna likely will be recalled in April and immediately start in left field. He could provide a needed power bat to help Freeman in the middle of the lineup. The Braves likely are still at least a year away from contending in the NL East, but improved starting pitching could push them closer to .500 this year.
BOSTON: 2017: 93-69, first place, lost to Houston in ALDS.
MANAGER: Alex Cora (first season).
ADDITIONS: DH J.D. Martinez.
SUBTRACTIONS:
MANAGER John Farrell, RHP Doug Fister, OF Chris Young, RHP Addison Reed, OF Rajai Davis, LHP Henry Owens, LHP Fernando Abad.
OUTLOOK: The Red Sox won 93 games last year for the second straight season and claimed the franchise's first back-to-back AL East titles. But Farrell was fired after they failed to advance in the playoffs for the fourth year in a row. The key ' and really only ' addition is Martinez, who gives them someone to replace longtime slugger David Ortiz after finishing last in the AL in homers without Big Papi in 2017. The theory behind Boston keeping up with the reloaded New York Yankees goes something like this: A full season of a healthy Price will bolster a rotation that already has a quality ace in Sale, plus 2016 AL Cy Young Award winner Porcello and All-Stars Pomeranz and Wright. The Red Sox also are staking their chances on the hope that Ramirez can be more like the player he was in 2016 (.286, 30, 111); that Pedroia will return quickly and be healthy and productive; that 20-year-old third baseman Devers will be able to stay up for a full season; and that Bradley won't have another second-half slump. The bullpen, anchored by Kimbrel, remains strong.
PREVIEW
Sale, Red Sox aim for sweep of Braves
 

BOSTON -- On July 8, 2016, Chris Sale -- then of the Chicago White Sox -- was slapped around by the Atlanta Braves to the tune of eight runs and 10 hits in five innings.

On Sunday, Sale, now the ace of the Boston Red Sox, gets a shot at evening the score when he faces Atlanta's Mike Foltynewicz as the Red Sox look for the three-game interleague sweep at Fenway Park.

Both have pitched well this season -- Sale just a bit better.

Foltynewicz comes in 3-3 with a 2.72 ERA and having surrendered two earned runs or fewer in nine of his 10 starts. He has struck out 62 in 53 innings. He has made two career appearances against Boston, both in relief.

Meanwhile, Sale has emerged as a Cy Young contender NOT pitching for the Houston Astros, going 5-1 with a 2.17 ERA and posting 96 strikeouts in 70 2/3 innings. He is 4-0 with a 2.38 ERA in his last six starts and has 45 Ks in his last four.

Saturday's 8-5 victory kept the Red Sox in first place in the American League East.

Atlanta comes in with four losses in its last five games. The Phillies took two of three from the Braves in Philadelphia to start Atlanta's road trip. The Braves had won 11 of their previous 12 road games before this 1-4 stretch.

The Braves have failed to hold leads in each of the first two games in Boston.

Boston area native Sean Newcomb, pitching at Fenway for the first time and in front of family and friends, lasted only three innings Saturday, ending an impressive pitching run.

"Wasn't clicking," Braves manager Brian Snitker said. "I don't know, it just wasn't. He's bound to have one of those. ... He just didn't have it."

Newcomb estimated a personal crowd of some 200 at the game, saying, "There were a couple of my buddies near the dugout, so I could hear some of the stuff they were saying, but that was it. It was cool to get a chance to have the family and friends come watch."

Dustin Pedroia made his 2018 debut for the Red Sox on Saturday after recovering from knee surgery and went 0-for-4 with a walk and run scored. He batted sixth in his first game back and looked quick diving into home plate for his run.

"To get an opportunity to play baseball here, I never take it for granted," Pedroia said. "So today was up there with any of the moments I've been here." Veteran right-hander Anibal Sanchez, who turned in a strong rehab outing in Triple-A on Friday night (after one rocky start) will likely start for the Braves on Tuesday night at home against the New York Mets.

Sanchez was 1-0 with a 1.29 ERA in three starts out of the gate before suffering a right hamstring injury.

On the Boston side, Drew Pomeranz, who struggled again Saturday, will be making his next start Thursday in Houston. Steven Wright, an All-Star starter for Boston in 2016, worked three innings of scoreless relief Saturday, picking up his first victory of the season in his fourth relief outing after his season was delayed by rehab and suspension.

"It wasn't a great day for him, but we trust this guy," Boston manager Alex Cora said of Pomeranz, a 17-game winner last season, when he also had a rough start. "He was in the same spot last year and all of a sudden he turned it around. We'll go to Houston Thursday and make adjustments in the next few days and see if it works out."

Nick Markakis is 5-for-14 and Kurt Suzuki 8-for-25 lifetime against Sale. Eduardo Nunez (2-for-9) and J.D. Martinez (1-for-3) are the only Red Sox players with at least three at-bats against Foltynewicz.
