Brock Holt's RBI single in the 11th inning lifted the Boston Red Sox to a 3-2 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Thursday night.
Travis Shaw, who had a solo homer in the second, opened the 11th against Cody Martin (1-2) with an opposite-field single to left against the shift. Sandy Leon sacrificed Shaw to second and Holt then bounced an single up the middle off the glove of diving shortstop Sean O'Malley.
Craig Kimbrel (2-3) retired all four batters he faced — including striking out the side in the 10th — for the victory. Brad Ziegler pitched the 11th for his third save, stranding the tying run at third.
