Pilot, Boston's Ellsbury wins Series

on Nov 04, 2013

Former Glacier Pilot, Jacoby Ellsbury is a World Series champion again.
For the second time in his professional baseball career the 30-year-old Navajo outfielder is part of another Boston Red Sox World Series championship team.
 Ellsbury and the Red Sox won the title when they defeated the St. Louis Cardinals 6-1 at Fenway Park.
 It is the first time since 1918 that the Red Sox have won a World Series title at Fenway.
 The Red Sox finished the series 4-2.
 Ellsbury lead the Boston off with a single to right at the bottom of the third. A double by Shane Victorino brought Ellsbury, David Ortiz and Jonny Gomes in for three runs to lead 3-0.
 Ellsbury had another base hit to right at the bottom of the fourth and ran as far as second base. A single by Mike Napoli brought Ellsbury in for his second run of the game.
 The soon-to-be free agent lit the stage at the bottom of the fifth when he tried to steal second. Ellsbury escaped a tag out four Cardinals players and got back to first base.
 Ellsbury finished the game with five at-bats, three hits and a batting average of .296.
 He was a part of the Red Sox 2007 World Series team.
