Come on, Jonny. You’re really just going to stand there and let Brock Holt do everything?
What should have been a routine pop fly for the Red Sox outfielder got lost in the lights. It looked like it was going to end in calamity. But Brock Holt has something to say about it.
Holt, in his first Major League game at center field, proceeded to turn the outfield into a circus with a dive that would make Willie Mays proud. With the camera focused on Gomes’ desperate search for the ball, Holt comes flying out from the right, barrel-rolling to the ground as he catches the ball.
Pick up the slack, Gomes.
