Flowers' grand slam helps Newcomb, Braves top Reds 8-1

ATLANTA (AP) Braves rookie Sean Newcomb relied on some clutch defense - including his own creative play - to frustrate the Cincinnati Reds.

Tyler Flowers' grand slam broke open a close game in Atlanta's six-run fifth inning, Newcomb earned his first home win and the Braves beat Cincinnati 8-1 on Sunday.

Newcomb (2-7) gave up five hits with five walks in five scoreless innings for his first victory since June 27 at San Diego. He improved to 1-6 in eight starts at SunTrust Park.
