Holt went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Mets. Holt extended Boston's lead to three in the third inning after hitting a ball over the fence in right field. He's off to a 4-for-17 start with a double, two home runs and eight RBI through 11 games in September, and he owns a .262/.347/.383 slash line in 100 games this season for Boston.
Holt hit a three-run, pinch-hit home run in the seventh inning of Tuesday's 7-2 win over Toronto. Holt's blast turned a one-run Toronto lead into a two-run Boston lead. It was the second go-ahead, pinch-hit homer of the season for Holt. He had been a regular in the lineup during August when Ian Kinsler and Rafael Devers were on the disabled list, but with those players back, Holt's starting assignments have been cut back.
Holt had a pinch-hit home run to provide the winning margin in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Phillies. Holt turned on the first pitch from Tommy Hunter, sending it 424 feet off the facade in right field. The blast was not only shocking for its distance but also its timing, coming in the eighth inning of a well-pitched game. Holt has managed to stay relevant in Boston's lineup as injuries continue to dog the infield. He had made five straight starts, hitting safely in each one, before Tuesday. With Ian Kinsler (hamstring) expected to be activated either Wednesday or Friday, Holt's playing time should take a hit. He and Eduardo Nunez are essentially vying for the same opportunities as utility infielders.
Holt went 3-for-4 with a homer, two walks, three runs and three RBI in Friday's big win over the Orioles. Holt hit his second homer of the year with a sixth-inning solo shot off Dylan Bundy. He drove in two more runs later in the same inning with a two-run single. The big day saw Holt's OPS jump from .675 up to .707.
Holt started at second base and went 1-for-3 in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Yankees. Holt got the start at second after Boston placed Ian Kinsler (hamstring) on the disabled list. Immediately after Kinsler was acquired, Holt was moved back to a super-utility role, but he should see regular at-bats at second base while Kinsler is sidelined. Eduardo Nunez could also get starts at second, but for the time being, he's needed to cover for the injured Rafael Devers (hamstring) at third base.
