Red Sox notebook: Brock Holt becomes first player in history to hit for cycle in playoffs

NEW YORK — Alex Cora has made a habit of keeping all 25 guys involved all year long, and he did it for moments like this.

Cora plugged three backups into the game last night, switching up his lineup after the Red Sox had scored just seven runs and hit just .213 in the first two games of the ALDS.

One of them, Brock Holt, became the first player in baseball history to hit for the cycle in a playoff game.
