Rounding first base hasn't been too kind to Red Sox second basemen this season. After Dustin Pedroia injured his hamstring rounding first base in a game last month, Brock Holt appeared to injure his left knee rounding first base during Sunday's game. He left the game after the fifth inning with left knee tightness. The Red Sox' lone All-Star appeared to injure the knee in the first inning when he awkwardly rounded first base after a single. Manager John Farrell and the trainer came out for a visit, but he stayed in the game. Holt left after the game after he singled again in the fifth and came around to score on David Ortiz' three-run home run. "He hyperextended his knee and it gained some tightness throughout the game," Farrell said. "We got him off his feet. We'll check him tomorrow. Day-to-day. We don't feel like this will be a time missed situation." Holt entered the game batting .280 on the season. New utility man Jemile Weeks took his place at second base. For more Red Sox news, visit
