BOSTON (AP) - Tommy La Stella's failure to catch a force attempt at second base allowed Jackie Bradley Jr. to score from second with none out in the ninth inning, giving the Boston Red Sox a 4-3 win over the Atlanta Braves for their fourth straight win after a 10-game skid.

The Red Sox took advantage of two more errors to score twice in the eighth to tie it 3-all and set up closer Koji Uehara (1-1) for the win.

Bradley and Brock Holt drew back-to-back walks off closer Craig Kimbrel (0-1). Xander Bogaerts followed with a hard grounder to Chris Johnson at third base for an infield single. Johnson stopped it and made a strong throw but Stella missed the catch with Holt bearing down. Bradley scored and the Red Sox rushed out of the dugout as the ball trickled into right field.

Boston completed a four-game sweep in the home-and-home series with the Braves.
