OKLAND, CA – Brock Holt has secured the last part of Red Sox's best game for the season.
It was like Holt started in the short season throughout the season. He did not even start a game with friends during spring training. And when the game was in line eighth in the Sox victory 6-3 over Oakland A on Wednesday evening, Holt looked easy.
Markus Semien hit a two-only single on Matt Barnes, stole second and advanced to third on a bad throw by Blake Swichart. Ramon Laureano struck slowly to the left, and Holt moved forward and right, then made the first first-hand bets to play with a crash.
Laureano was originally protected and green
Manager Alex Cora challenged the call, quickly turned and Holt, starting to replace Xander Bogaerts, saved the game.
"I mean, if there's no repetition, I'm throwing out of the game," Cora said. "If it was before replaying, I would be thrown out of the game. We were sure he was out.
Brock did a great play. It was unreal.
Holt looked relieved when he saw the call overturned.
"Once I threw it, I thought I had it," he said. "When he said safe, I did not know. I figured he was out, but after showing the replay, he looked pretty good. I'm just trying to help as much as I can. It was good to make this game, get back to the dwarves, and our guys did a great job. "
Holt had not begun a shortcut since September 29 last year, but he proved that" I think I've played enough in every place to feel comfortable there, "he said. "Always when I'm not playing, I usually take the earth balls out there, so for me this is probably one of the toughest positions on the pitch. So I have a lot of work there when I do not play there. I feel quite comfortable in the middle of both places. Luckily, I managed to make this game, and then good bats in this last inning to take some guys. "Legs on Tuesday. Sox did not use it on the bench on Wednesday.
