Holt, Cespedes bruised but not beaten

TORONTO -- Both Yoenis Cespedes and Brock Holt were a few inches away from being ninth-inning defensive heroes for the Red Sox rather than suffering costly collisions -- Cespedes with the left field wall and Holt with teammate Dustin Pedroia.

Both men came up big an inning later, as Holt's 10th-inning single and two steals paved the way for Cespedes to deliver the game-winning hit in Boston's 4-3 win over the Blue Jays.

Cespedes exits for 'family medical' issue

BOSTON -- Red Sox outfielder Yoenis Cespedes left Thursday's game after the third inning to deal with a "family medical emergency," manager John Farrell said after Boston's 2-0 loss to the Los Angeles Angels. "[It's a] personal matter he's dealing with," Farrell said. "We're hopeful he'll be back in the lineup tomorrow. That's the most I can tell you right now." Since his trade to the Red Sox at the July 31 trading deadline, Cespedes has been living here with his mother, Estela Milanes Salazar, who has in the past acknowledged issues with high blood pressure.

Pregame notes: Cespedes good to go

BOSTON -- After the Red Sox's 9-4 win over the Houston Astros on Thursday night at Fenway Park, Red Sox outfielder Yoenis Cespedes was sitting at his locker, sporting a couple of ice packs on his body. He exited Wednesday's game in Cincinnati with a hand contusion, but was back in the lineup on Thursday. Late in the game, he fouled a pitch off his left shin and was clearly in some discomfort.
