BOSTON (AP) Prized rookie Ronald Acuna Jr. took a high-flying tumble while beating out an infield hit, exiting with knee and lower back pain Sunday as the Atlanta Braves beat the Boston Red Sox 7-1.

Acuna waved his arms "safe" as he crossed the first base bag before his left foot gave out in the seventh inning, and he went sprawling. He walked off the field slowly, passing on a wheel chair that was rolled out for him.

The 20-year-old outfielder also walked and scored a run before leaving.
