Yankees’ Ellsbury Nearly Homers, But Fan Interfered

Yankees_Jacoby_Ellsbury_2014 [1]

In the very first at bat of the Red Sox-Yankees game last night, Jacoby Ellsbury hit a deep drive to center off starter Jon Lester.

The ball nearly cleared the wall, but it was interfered with by a fan. After the umpires conferred, Ellsbury was awarded a triple (instead of a ground-rule double).
