R&R ace pitcher Eddie Hole was working with authority through seven innings, allowing just two hits since the first inning. That was, until the eighth.

And as Iglesias is a free agent at the end of the season, the Red Sox were able to sidestep a potential off-season topic by trading away the one-time perceived starting shortstop of the future to Detroit.
