Franklin Morales won his first start of the season for the Red Sox, but Jacoby Ellsbury stole the show — and a lot of bases.
Ells swiped five bags against the Phillies on Thursday night, setting a new Red Sox team record in the process. He also might have earned a little bit of revenge after he was plunked in the middle innings of the game, but who’s to say what does and doesn’t give a guy with speed like Ellsbury the green light around the basepaths.
Whatever the reason, NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is happy it happened, so he’s awarding Ellsbury our “Running Retaliation” player of the game. Who’s yours?
