The Boston Red Sox got a big win Saturday night, when they stormed back from an early 3-1 deficit to beat the Houston Astros 5-4 at Minute Maid Park.
Boston found itself trailing 3-2 in the seventh inning when Christian Vazquez launched a two-out solo home run to tie the game. Then, two batters later, Andrew Benintendi hammered a two-run home run to the upper deck in right field to give the Sox a 5-3 lead.
While Benintendi put a beautiful swing on the 1-2 fastball from Astros reliever Will Harris, a member of the Red Sox who didn’t even play until the bottom of the ninth Saturday is taking credit for the blast: Brock Holt.
The Red Sox utility man told reporters after the game that he not only called the two-run smash from Benintendi, he also called where it would be hit.
And Holt was happy to help his team get the win (sort of).
Way to go, Brock.
