ATLANTA -- David Ortiz homered and drove in four runs as the Boston Red Sox ended their 10-game losing streak, rallying from a five-run deficit to defeat the Atlanta Braves 8-6 on Monday. Georgios Papagiannis Jersey . The defending World Series champions trailed 6-1 after the fourth, with starter Clay Buchholz walking a career-high eight in only three-plus innings. But Ortiz tied it by hitting a three-run homer off Ervin Santana in the fifth. With Red Sox fans at Turner Field chanting "Papi! Papi!" the World Series MVP then gave Boston the lead with a bases-loaded sacrifice fly off Ian Thomas (1-2) in the seventh. Following pregame declarations of confidence from manager John Farrell and general manager Ben Cherington, the Red Sox came back to end their worst skid since an 11-game slide in 1994. The losing streak was the longest for a defending World Series champion since the depleted 1998 Marlins had two 11-game skids. Justin Upton drove in three runs with two hits for Atlanta. Edward Mujica (2-1) got the win with a scoreless sixth inning following a 1 1/2-hour rain delay. Chris Johnson singled with one out in the ninth before Koji Uehara capped his 10th save with Andrelton Simmons game-ending double-play grounder. Uehara was Bostons seventh pitcher. Buchholz began the day with an unsightly 6.32 ERA, but even with his poor start he hadnt walked more than three batters in a game. He couldnt overcome unprecedented control problems, as he allowed six runs and four hits. Buchholz was wild from the start. He walked leadoff hitter Jason Heyward and catcher A.J. Pierzynski visited after a first-pitch ball to the next hitter, B.J. Upton. Pitching coach Juan Nieves made his first walk to the mound when Buchholz walked Freddie Freeman. Buchholz matched his season high of three walks in the second inning and added three walks in the Braves three-run third. Justin Upton had a two-run double and Gerald Laird had a run-scoring single off Buchholzs left foot. Buchholz didnt get out of Atlantas three-run fourth. Heyward walked and scored on B.J. Uptons double, and Justin Upton and Simmons added RBI singles. As Bostons early deficit grew, the frustration from its players became more obvious. After his groundout in the fourth, star Dustin Pedroia stalked around the dugout, shouting in anger before slamming his hand on the bench. He seemed to be upset about a ball-strike call earlier in the at-bat. The Red Sox rallied with five runs in the fifth against Santana. Pedroia drove in two runs with a single before Ortiz hit his tying homer to left-centre. It marked the third straight start Santana allowed at least five earned runs. He gave up five runs on six hits and three walks in five innings. Following the rain delay, Thomas walked two batters following an infield hit by Brock Holt, loading the bases. Ortiz drove in Holt with a fly ball to right field, giving Boston a 7-6 lead. Pierzynskis single up the middle pushed the lead to two runs. Heyward led off the eighth with a single to centre field off Andrew Miller but slid past second base trying for a double. He was tagged by Pedroia while reaching back for the bag. NOTES: The crowd was a sellout of 48,501. Most fans remained during the rain delay. ... Buchholz singled in the second inning for his second hit in the majors. ... Holt had two hits and scored twice. ... The Red Sox recalled C-1B Ryan Lavarnway from Triple-A Pawtucket and optioned RHP Alex Wilson to Pawtucket.

The wins increase Winnipegs lead in the North Division to at least 3 1/2 games and extends the Goldeyes winning streak to four games. “It was a good day for the club,” Winnipeg Goldeyes manager Rick Forney said. “We got contributions from a lot of people.” In the second game, Fargo scored first in the top of the first inning when C.J. Retherford collided with Goldeyes catcher Luis Alen at home plate and ball popped out of Alens glove. Alen was shook up on the play, but stayed in the game after taking a few minutes to compose himself. “It was a very unsettling situation, not only for Luis, by for our entire team,” Forney said. “Hes a very important part to our team around here and Luis is a tough guy. He understands that if you play that position things like that could happen. “Hes going to be sore tomorrow. His whole body will be sore. Plus, he caught 14 innings. That shows you how tough he is.” Winnipeg battled back to take the lead with two runs in the bottom of the second, as Reggie Abercrombie singled in Jake Blackwood and Jordan Guida singled in Abercrombie.

Ethan Hollingsworth went 5 1/3 innings to get the win for the Goldeyes, improving his record to a perfect 5-0, while Taylor Stanton dropped to 2-8 with the loss. Lafferty picked up his first save in a 90 outings in Goldeyes uniform. In the first game, the Goldeyes scored five runs in the bottom of the first and cruised to a 7-2 win over the RedHawks.

Salamida needs 10 more wins to catch Ace Walker for the franchise record. Aside for Tuesday night, the Goldeyes also swept the RedHawks in doubleheader on June 30.
