Apparently breaking records is bad for the nether regions. Jacoby Ellsbury remains out of the lineup for the Sox second game in New York tonight. Ellsbury missed Friday’s 4-1 loss to the Yankees due to stiffness in his left groin.

Manager John Farrell said, “[He] was stiff throughout the course of the game tonight. Questionable tomorrow. We’ll see how he comes in tomorrow.”

Thursday night Ellsbury broke the Red Sox all-time record for steals in a game with five.

Before last night’s game Ellsbury said, “I felt it get tight right when I did it. It’s day to day. I want to do the right thing so it doesn’t get worse.”

Ellsbury is 16 of 40 (.400) in his last 10 games with eight walks.

"I always want to be in there, especially a game like this," said Ellsbury. "It's always fun to play. Take care of it and shouldn't be a problem."

Jackie Bradley Jr. took Ellsbury’s spot in center and went a limp 0-3 with two strikeouts. Bradley gets another start tonight against the Yankees Phil Hughes.

No other injuries were reported after the game despite multiple shots of model Kate Upton on the Yankees big screen.
