BOSTON (AP) -

Chris Johnson's throwing error from third base allowed Jackie Bradley Jr. to score from second with none out in the ninth inning, giving the Boston Red Sox a 4-3 win over the Atlanta Braves for their fourth straight win after a 10-game skid.

Bradley and Brock Holt drew back-to-back walks off closer Craig Kimbrel (0-1). Xander Bogaerts followed with a hard grounder to Johnson at third. Johnson stopped it and picked it up, but his attempt to force Holt at second base was off and the Red Sox were rushing out of the dugout as the ball trickled into right and Bradley came around for the winning run.

The Red Sox scored twice in the eighth to tie it at 3-all and set up closer Koji Uehara (1-1) for the win.

Boston completed a four-game sweep in the home-and-home series with the Braves.
