BOSTON (AP) -- Nick Green homered just inside the right-field foul pole on the first pitch of the bottom of the ninth to give the Boston Red Sox a 6-5 win over the Atlanta Braves on Sunday.

Facing Jeff Bennett (2-4) for the first time in his career, the shortstop who began spring training as a non-roster player but became a regular hit his fourth homer of the season. His jubilant teammates poured out of the dugout and mobbed him at home plate.

Jonathan Papelbon (1-1) loaded the bases in the top half but ended the threat by striking out Matt Diaz.
