The Red Sox won another close game on the road, beating the Mariners last night, 2-1. Shane Victorino was both the offensive and defensive star—clouting a solo HR and making a spectacular running catch/double play. Joe Kelly pitched well—going 6.1, giving up just one run on five hits and walking three. Boston rallied for the win in the 9th inning—with (who else?) Brock Holt starting the inning with a double. He scored from third on a fly ball error—that probably would have scored him anyway on a sac fly. Hanley Ramirez went 4 for 5 and raised his average to .284.
