May 24 - 7:35 PM

Jacoby Ellsbury went 1-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base in Thursday's loss to the Astros.

It was a stranger night for the 33-year-old than the mundane stat line would suggest. Ellsbury picked up his RBI on a catcher's interference call, and while his single in the ninth inning gave the Yankees some life, the outfielder was also cut down at home plate to end the game. Ellsbury has shown some things through his first 100 at-bats this year, batting .280/.368/.420 with four homers, eight steals, 12 RBI and 16 runs scored.
