The Red Sox finally got back into the win column yesterday, scoring a 9-4 win over the Atlanta Braves at Fenway Park. Brock Holt was the star, playing second base in place of Dustin Pedroia and hitting for the cycle in the victory.

This fairly snarky article, which seems to be more about Brady not talking about the Wells Report and PSI, is a curious bit of investigative journalism.
