WATCH: Brock Holt clubs go-ahead solo homer to lead off 9th inning vs. Padres

The Boston Red Sox found themselves in a tough spot late in their game against the San Diego Padres. After holding a 4-0 lead early in the game, the Padres gradually chipped away at the lead before tying the game at 4-4 in the seventh inning.

Heading into the ninth inning, the Sox found themselves still a tie game with one more chance to score before entering potential walk-off territory. And given that their bullpen had been in action for a good chunk of the night, they were running out of time to get on the board.

Luckily for them, Brock Holt delivered.

Holt was the first batter of the ninth inning for the Red Sox and he made his at-bat count. Holt was able to get ahold of the first pitch he saw and put it over the fence for the go-ahead solo homer. Here's a look at the blast via the Red Sox official Twitter account.

The homer was only Holt's third of the season, but it couldn't have come at a better time. Now, it will fall on Brandon Workman's shoulders to finish off the Padres and ensure that the Red Sox can notch their 70th win of the season.
