Red Sox Score Nine In Ninth; Beat Rays, 11-8

Holt Singles In The Big Sox 9th
It looked like just another ho-hum Spring Training loss. Boston was down 8-2 to the Rays going into the top of the ninth at Port Charlotte, Florida. Then, the deluge. The Red Sox scored six to tie the score—and still had none out and the bases loaded. They went on to tally three more to capture an 11-8 winBlake Swihart (he of the AAA destination) had a two-run triple in the inning and Brock Holt, Daniel Nava, David Chester (who?), Deven Marrero and then Swihart again, had RBI hits. Kind of fun. Kind of goofy. We'll take it.
