Ellsbury, Sox Walk-Off With Win

By on September 3, 2008 in ,

On Wednesday afternoon, the Boston Red Sox tied the MLB sellout record with their 455th consecutive sold-out game at Fenway Park. However, as the Sox came up to bat in the 7th they found themselves down 4-0. Dustin Pedroia would homer and Jason Bay would be walked in before the inning was over. Bay and Varitek would strike out to end the threat.

The next time the Sox were up, a David Ortiz walk and Dustin Pedroia single were followed up by a monster triple by Mark Kotsay, tying up the score.

An Alex Cora hit and a defensive flub on a Coco Crisp bunt gave the Sox two on with no outs. Jacoby Ellsbury laid down a sacrifice bunt that was mishandled by pitcher Jim Miller, and the Red Sox walked off with the win.

The Sox currently sit 3.5 games behind the Tampa Bay Rays in the American League East, with the Tampa Bay Rays in action later against the New York Yankees.
