The Red Sox are undefeated in 23 games in which they have drawn six or more walks.“Today he had that fastball up and away early,” said Boston manager Alex Cora of Newcomb. “But then we were disciplined enough to lay off. … We got to their bullpen.”Newcomb lasted only 4 1/3 innings, allowing three runs and four hits.The Red Sox (96-44) have won 20 more games than the Braves (76-62).
