Coco Crisp tripled his season home run total by hitting two solo shots, but the Red Sox couldn't overcome a rough start by Curt Schilling in the series opener in Atlanta. The multi-homer game was the first of Crisp's career. In the seventh inning, J.D. Drew added a solo shot of his own.
Brian McCann drove in four runs off Boston's Curt Schilling, chasing the veteran with a three-run shot in the fifth, and Chuck James went 5 1/3 innings, giving up just two runs -- both via Coco Crisp solo homers. Scott Thorman added a two-run shot for Atlanta in the seventh inning.
