    Brock Holt’s pinch-hit, eighth-inning home run was the difference on Tuesday night in Boston’s 2-1 victory over the Phillies.  The bottom of the Sox lineup had three of Boston’s four extra-base hits, including a solo homer from Sandy Leon and another double from Sox slugger (and winning pitcher) Rick Porcello.
