The Brock Star Comes Through [VIDEO]
How good is it going for the Boston Red Sox? How about a 2-1 win over the Phillies with the only two runs coming from a pinch-hit home run from Brock Holt and a solo home run from Sandy Leon.
Pick a night. Pick a star.
With the game tied 1-1 in the 8th inning, Holt pinch-hit for pitcher Rick Porcello. He ripped the first pitch he saw for home run. It was the first pinch-hit homer for the Sox this year.
Earlier in the game, light hitting catcher Leon got the Sox a lead with a solo shot.
On the mound, Porcello was brilliant. Seven innings of one run, two hit ball. He struck out 10 and did not walk a batter.
Heath Hembree pitched the 8th inning. Craig Kimbrel worked the 9th for his 36th save.
