Boston Red Sox third baseman Tzu-Wei Lin will at least be able to show his first career caught stealing and be able to say it wasn’t totally on him. New York Yankees second baseman Starlin Castro slapped down an elite tag to nab him and keep it a one-run game.

It’s a good thing the lead was only a run; Matt Holliday led off the top of the ninth inning with a game-tying home run over Red Sox closer Craig Kimbrel.
As for Castro, that’s a nice return for his first game back since June 26.
