Trailing 3-1 going into the top of the fourth, Brock Holt did his best to try and spark the Red Sox offense, laying down a bunt to lead off the frame to try and fool the Cleveland defense.

And it almost worked, but luckily for Cleveland, pitcher T.J. House was Johnny-on-the-spot.

House sprinted over to the ball and got it in his glove with almost no time to spare. Knowing he had no time to get the ball to his throwing hand, he shoveled it with his glove to first baseman Lonnie Chisenhall just before Holt stomped down on the base.
