The Boston Red Sox lost their season-high fourth straight game on Sunday, but in a small bright spot, third baseman Brock Holt made one impressive defensive play.
With two outs in the top of the seventh inning, Detroit Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez hit a popup into foul territory. Red Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski did his best to chase down the ball, but it popped out of his glove. Fortunately for the Sox, Holt — who had also made the chase from third base — was right there to make a barehanded catch off the deflection.
