A Quiroz appearance
Third-string catcher Guillermo Quiroz, obtained from Seattle Sept. 4, finally got in a game, catching the final two innings Wednesday. He struck out swinging to end the game. He is the 56th player used by the Sox this season, a team record . . . Ellsbury was 3 for 3 before coming out and is 18 of 45 with nine RBIs in his last 11 games.
