Braves Pitcher Gavin Floyd Suffers Fractured Elbow

Braves Pitcher Gavin Floyd Suffers Fractured Elbow

Major League Baseball(NEW YORK) -- The Atlanta Braves are dealing with yet another pitching injury as starter Gavin Floyd will be placed on the disabled list after breaking a bone is his throwing elbow on Thursday night.

Floyd broke the olecranon -- the bony tip of the ulna that sticks out behind the elbow -- in the seventh inning on his first pitch to outfielder Jayson Werth.

This is a rare injury for a player, so the team isn't exactly sure when he'll be able to get back on the mound, but he's expected to make a full recovery.

The team had signed Floyd because of injuries to the team's starting rotation heading into the season. The Braves have already lost starers Kris Medlen and Brandon Beachy for the season as both required Tommy John Surgery.

Floyd was off to a great start with the Braves. In 9 starts, he went 2-2 with a 2.65 ERA. The 31-year-old is in his 11th Major League Season, and has a career 72-72 record.

Ortiz Held Out of Starting Lineup Due to Sore Right Calf

Ortiz Held Out of Starting Lineup Due to Sore Right Calf Scott Cunningham/Getty Images(BOSTON) -- Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz was scratched from the team's starting lineup Thursday against the Atlanta Braves due to right calf soreness.                                                                           Ortiz did enter the game in the eighth inning as a pinch-hitter and was intentionally walked, but then was replaced by a pinch-runner.                                                                                             The 38-year-old Ortiz has been dealing with calf issues throughout the season and he missed last Saturday's game due to his calf.                                                                                                                                        

"After two full days at first base (in Atlanta) and another at DH last night, it was best to hold him out tonight," Red Sox skipper John Farrell said. "This is precautionary, just want to not put him at risk any further."

Ortiz is hitting .270, with 12 home runs, 30 RBIs and a .372 on-base percentage this season.                             Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Red Sox Beat Braves, Snap Skid

Red Sox Beat Braves, Snap Skid

Scott Cunningham/Getty Images(ATLANTA, Ga.) -- David Ortiz hadn't homered since May 14 and was hitting just .118 with no runs batted in in his last 10 games. Coincidentally, the Boston Red Sox had not won since May 14 and lost their previous 10 contests.

In the top of the sixth inning, trailing 6-3 at Atlanta, and with two runners on base, Ortiz launched a three-run homer to left center that tied the ballgame. He later drove in the go-ahead run on a sacrifice fly in the seventh as the Red Sox (21-29) defeated the Braves, 8-6, to snap their longest skid in two decades.

"It's been too long since we last shook hands following a win," said Boston manager John Farrell. The Red Sox were in danger of tying the record for most consecutive losses by a defending World Series champion. The 1998 Florida Marlins dropped 11 in a row twice during their 1997 title defense. Boston had not lost 10 straight since the 1994 season.

An optimistic start for the Red Sox saw Jackie Bradley, Jr. drive in Grady Sizemore for the games first run in the third. However, starting pitcher Clay Buchholz walked a career high eight batters and did not make it out of the fourth inning. The Braves (28-22) scored three runs in both the third and fourth innings to chase the righty.

"It seems to be snowballing on me right now," said Buchholz who allowed six runs on four hits before being lifted in the fourth without recording an out.

Boston rallied though, beginning with a two-run single by Dustin Pedroia in the sixth, which immediately preceeded Ortiz's game-tying blast off Atlanta's Ervin Santana. There was a near 90-minute rain delay before the inning was finally ended.

The Red Sox bats, and bullpen, finally came through when Ortiz lifted a fly ball to deep right field in the seventh that put Boston ahead, 7-6. A.J. Pierzynski then singled home another run while the bullpen held Atlanta off the boards for the final five innings.

Ian Thomas (1-2) was saddled with the loss after giving up the two runs in the seventh, while Edward Mujica (2-1) got the win for Boston. Koji Uehara earned his 10th save of the season, getting Andrelton Simmons to ground into a game-ending double play in the ninth.

Arenado Breaks Finger, Will Miss “Some Time”

Arenado Breaks Finger, Will Miss “Some Time”

Scott Cunningham/Getty Images(ATLANTA, Ga.) -- The Colorado Rockies could be without third baseman Nolan Arenado for a significant amount of time. That is after the second year player fractured his left middle finger on a head-first slide into second base Friday night.

"He'll miss some time," said Rockies manager Walt Weiss. "It's tough news for our club. He's off to a great start and a hell of a player."

Arenado was hitting .305 with six home runs and 28 runs batted in to begin the season. The injury came in the top of the second when he hit a double to left. Arenado dove head first, ahead of the tag from Atlanta Braves shortstop Andrelton Simmons. 

Following a review of the play, which was upheld, Arenado grabbed at his left hand but stayed in the game and later scored. He was replaced in the field by Charlie Culberson in the bottom of the second.

Currently, Arenado is listed as day-to-day but could miss 6-8 weeks if he opts to have surgery. The Rockies would end up losing, 3-2, to Atlanta.
