Brock Holt had a go-ahead RBI single in a 4-3 win over the Rays in 10 innings on Friday.

Mookie Betts led off the top of the 10th inning with a double against Steve Geltz before Holt singled to left to drive him in. It's worth noting that he got caught in a rundown on the play and appeared to be in some discomfort as he came off the field. The Red Sox obviously can't afford to lose him right now. Either way, it proved to be the difference in the ballgame.
