PHILADELPHIA – Jacoby Ellsbury has capped off a pretty nice night with a home run to right field in the ninth inning, making it 11-6 Boston. Ellsbury reached base five times with three walks, an infield hit and home run. The homer was his second of the season.
Jonathan Papelbon is on for the bottom of the ninth in a non-save situation. Papelbon, fined $1,000 by Major League Baseball earlier this week for a pace-of-game violation, hurried out to the mound after he left the gate.
