Holt’s RBI triple helps Boston beat Orioles 4-2
Question of the Day
After the game, Holt did interviews in front of a large-screen TV in the middle of the locker room, a spot usually reserved for the game’s star or starting pitcher.
“It’s fun,” Holt said.
On Friday, Holt went 2 for 4 and drove in a run during the series-opening loss to Baltimore.
“You want to go out and play well anytime you’re out there,” he said. “I’ve got these first two under my belt and had some success, hopefully I can continue to keep going out there.”
But it was Holt’s hit that sparked the victory.
“He had been swinging the bat very well in Pawtucket. He was able to get on a little bit of roll,” Boston manager John Farrell said. “What we’ve seen - I know it’s only two games - is a little bit more authority, particularly on the pull side (of the plate).”
Junichi Tazawa (1-0) pitched 1 1-3 hitless innings of relief. Koji Uehara struck out three after a leadoff walk for his fourth save.
The benches emptied briefly in the seventh after Bud Norris (0-2) threw high and tight to David Ross, who was trying to sacrifice. Ross yelled something, but Orioles catcher Matt Wieters stepped in between and both sides retreated to the dugouts.
“It’s emotional. Ross is a good player - a good catcher and a pro,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “But I know Matt. He’s not going to allow somebody to yell at his pitcher like that - especially when he doesn’t have any reason to.”
Norris didn’t know why Ross was so upset, especially when he was giving up an at-bat to move a runner.
