Ellsbury Pads Record

The first inning last night:

Boston took a 1-0 lead when Ellsbury singled, stole his major-league leading 68th base and advanced on fielders choice by Victor Martinez and scored on a sacrifice fly by Youk.

This is the Red Sox playing small ball.

Ellsbury is starting to look like a top-tier leadoff hitter. His average is sitting at .301 and he has collected 186 hits. If he can take a few more walks and raise his OBP a little bit the Sox will be in good shape in Center Field for long time.
