Jacoby Ellsbury Says Red Sox Control Own Destiny, Thinks 18-Run Offensive Attack Could Send Them in Right Direction


Jacoby Ellsbury has had a monster season and on Monday night, during the second game of the Red Sox' doubleheader against the Orioles, he had another first.

Ellsbury hit his first career inside-the-park home run, which marked the team's first since Kevin Youkilis' on May 28, 2007 against the Cleveland Indians at Fenway. He now has 78 extra-base hits this season, which is second to Fred Lynn's 82 when it comes to the highest single-season total for a center fielder in team history.

After the 18-9 win on Monday, Ellsbury spoke with NESN's Heidi Watney about the importance of the team's win in the nightcap after falling to the Orioles 6-5 in their afternoon game. To hear what he had to say, check out the video above.
