Braves make rotation change for series opener vs. Red Sox

BOSTON -- Massachusetts native Sean Newcomb was in line to make a homecoming start for the Atlanta Braves on Friday night at Fenway Park.

Instead, he will wait until Saturday as manager Brian Snitker moved Julio Teheran into the Friday start against the Boston Red Sox and he did it for good reason.

Newcomb has thrived when given an extra days' rest.
