William Contreras has big day as Braves get first spring win over Red Sox

William Contreras had three RBIs while the pitching staff was largely good if a bit uneven at times as the Braves got their first spring win with a 5-3 victory over the Boston Red Sox.

Huascar Ynoa got the start for the Braves and made quick work of the Red Sox in the first inning with a pair of strikeouts. His fastball looked quite good. In the second inning, Ynoa would walk Bobby Dalbec, but proceed to strike out the next two batters before his second walk of the inning ended his outing. Kurt Hoekstra would then come on in relief and walk the first batter he faced to load the bases and then walk the ninth hole hitter to give the Red Sox their first run of the game before finally recording the third out.
