April 26: Red Sox 4, Yankees 1
Sunday's finale made the highlight reel in memorable fashion. Jacoby Ellsbury stole the show with a straight steal of home plate with the bases loaded and the Sox leading, 2-1, in the fifth inning. "There was no set play so I originally was going to go feet first. But then I saw J.D. (Drew) kind of move that he saw me coming in, so at the last minute I decided to go headfirst," Ellsbury said. After the steal, Drew hit a ground rule double to give the Sox the 4-1 lead and, eventually, the series sweep.
