With the Houston Astros in Boston for a four-game series against the Red Sox, a reunion of sorts is taking place at Fenway Park.
Red Sox utility man Brock Holt and Astros outfielder Robbie Grossman were roommates when they both played for the Pittsburgh Pirates’s Double-A affiliate Altoona Curve in 2012. NESN’s Gary Striewski talked to both Grossman and Holt before Saturday’s game and tried to get some dirt, but Grossman insisted there was nothing bad to say about his friend.
“He’s just a good Texas boy,” Grossman said. “He likes country music, and we’d always listen to small-time country music.”
