ATLANTA (AP) - Rick Porcello combined with three relievers on a four-hitter, Jackie Bradley Jr. hit his first homer and the Boston Red Sox shut out Atlanta 1-0 on Monday night, giving the punchless Braves their sixth straight loss.
    
The Braves' home-run drought reached 14 games, matching the longest streak in their Atlanta history.
    
Porcello (4-0) won his fourth straight start, allowing only four hits with two walks. Porcello gave up a double to Jeff Francoeur with one out in the seventh and left the game after walking Freddie Freeman. Robbie Ross Jr. stranded runners on first and third by striking out pinch-hitter Erick Aybar to end the inning.
    
Julio Teheran (0-3) allowed only two hits before Bradley pulled a belt-high fastball over the right field wall for his first homer in the seventh.
    
The Braves hit their last home run on April 10 and have only three for the season, easily the fewest in the majors.
