BOSTON -- It took 233 games, but Red Sox center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury finally knows what it feels like to make an error in a Major League game.
Ellsbury's run of 232 games and 554 chances represented the longest errorless streaks by an outfielder in Red Sox history.
But it came to an end in the top of the first inning on Wednesday night, when Marlins designated hitter Jorge Cantu hit a fly ball to left-center that appeared as if it would be the third out.
Ellsbury, in stride, reached out, and had the ball go off the top of his glove. It was by no means an easy play, but it is one Ellsbury has made countless times in his career.
