Red Sox playing Yankees game under protest after freakish play

Boston Red Sox reliever Blaine Boyer left Saturday's game against the New York Yankees in the top of the 13th inning because of tightness in this right elbow.

Meanwhile, Moreland couldn't get back to first to catch the throw, which ricocheted off Ellsbury's leg and the ball kicked down the baseline a little bit.

But Matt Holliday, who was on first, made a decision to stop running towards second and ran back to first.

But rather than running toward second and peeling off, Holliday retreated toward first and slid into the bag as shortstop Xander Bogaerts' throw arrived.

On Friday night, Castro played his second game for the Thunder, he went 1 for 4 with a double.

The Red Sox, of course, believed Ellsbury should have called out due to interference, but the umpires, after a lengthy review, made a decision to call him safe.

It was announced in the press box that the Red Sox were playing the game under protest.

That home run handed Craig Kimbrel his first blown save of the year.
