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. As it happened, these were only temporary obstacles. 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.
