BOSTON (AP) The Boston Red Sox are playing their game against the New York Yankees under protest after a strange play in the 11th inning at Fenway Park.
But rather than running toward second and peeling off, Holliday retreated toward first and slid into the bag as shortstop Xander Bogaerts' throw arrived. Moreland wasn't able to reach the ball, which hit Ellsbury and bounced into foul territory.
Red Sox manager John Farrell argued in favor of an interference call. After a lengthy review, the umpires allowed Ellsbury to stay on first.
It was announced in the press box that the Red Sox were playing the game under protest. The Yankees didn't score and the score remained tied at 1.
