    Braves call up top prospect Grissom, bring back RHP Yates

    The Atlanta Braves called up prized prospect Vaughn Grissom to play second base Wednesday and brought back former Padres closer Kirby Yates from a rehab assignment — nearly two years after he last pitched in the big leagues. The 21-year-old Grissom was in the lineup, batting ninth for the second of two games at Fenway Park. Grissom got the call after batting a combined .324 with 14 homers, 67 RBIs and 27 stolen bases for High-A Rome and Double-A Mississippi.

    Riley's big night lifts Braves over Red Sox 9-7 in 11

    The Atlanta Braves arrived at Fenway Park looking to put a disappointing series against the NL-East leading New York Mets as far in the rearview mirror as possible. Austin Riley did his part to start that process. Riley had a go-ahead, two-run single in the 11th inning and the Braves rallied for a 9-7 win over the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday night.
