That did not take long. To be exact, only 12 minutes. Brock Holt gave the Red Sox a single to the left field on Thursday to complete a 5-4 victory over the Royals in 10 innings in the resumption of a game that was suspended due to rain on August 7.
Christian Vázquez started the winning rally when he crashed a double against the fence with one out. Royals manager Ned Yost ordered an intentional base from Sam Travis. And Holt finished the game with his shot.
Here is the video:
The game resumed with teams locked in a 4-4 draw at the top of the tenth.
Josh Taylor, the record pitcher when the action stopped two weeks ago, returned for continuation on Thursday, and got a liner on the first pitch he threw to emerging hitter Nick Dini.
It is the first time that the Red Sox have a game suspended but not continued the next day since June 13, 1968 against the Angels. Children were admitted to the baseball stadium for free on Thursday, and adults had an entry fee of $ 5 with all income.
