Holt hits for cycle in Red Sox win


BOSTON: Brock Holt became the first Boston Red Sox player since 1996 to hit for the cycle on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila) helping the Red Sox to a skid-busting 9-4 win over the Atlanta Braves. Holt went to the plate with two outs in the bottom of the eighth and laced a triple to the warning track in right center field. He slid into the third base without a throw, the triple completing his collection for the night of a single, double, triple and home run. The last Boston batter to hit one of each in a game was John Valentin on June 6, 1996. No one had hit for the cycle against the Braves since Keith Hernandez did it on July 4, 1985.
