(NEWS CENTER)-- The Red Sox beat the Braves 4-0 behind a strong outing from the pitching staff, especially starter John Lackey. This also was the night the team celebrated the 10th anniversary of the 2004 World Series team.

Lackey pitched six plus innings of scoreless baseball to go along with nine strikeouts, improving his record to 6-3. The bullpen only allowed one hit in nearly three innings of work to complete the shutout.

On offense Xander Bogaerts led the way going 3-4 with a double and one rbi. Jackie Bradley Jr. continued to hit the Braves well with two base knocks, including an rbi double in the 6th inning.

For the Braves Gavin Floyd was the tough luck loser. He allowed one earned run in five innings to drop to 0-2 on the season. The win improves the Sox winning streak to three games as they try for the rare four game sweep.
