New York Yankees: Ellsbury Steals Home To Tie The Game (Video)

New York Yankees’ center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury straight up stole home to perhaps give his offense the spark it needs.

In the bottom of the fifth inning of today’s game between the New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays, Jacoby Ellsbury stole home with two away to tie the game at three.

Matt Moore was on the hill pitching from the wind-up with absolutely zero attention on the speedy outfielder on third.

On a 3-2 pitch to Brett Gardner, Ellsbury broke for the plate and dove to make it a successful attempt.

It was Ellsbury’s fifth stolen base of the year, and the first Yankee to steal home since Derek Jeter did it back in 2001 against the Baltimore Orioles.

Ellsbury’s last steal of home took place against his current team when he was a member of the Boston Red Sox. In a game at Fenway Park in 2009, he stole home off Andy Pettite
