Iglesias and Ellsbury swing into action in seventh

The seventh inning was when Jose Iglesias and Jacoby Ellsbury made the stage all their own. They played supporting roles for the Red Sox, providing unlikely sources of production in a four-run outburst that broke open the floodgates in Friday night’s 8-1 romp over the Cleveland Indians before a Fenway Park crowd of 34,074.

Called up from Triple A Pawtucket earlier in the day to fill in for injured third baseman Will Middlebrooks (lower-back strain), Iglesias was the first to take a star turn at the plate when he stepped in to face lefthanded reliever Rich Hill with one out and two aboard and the Sox holding a 4-1 advantage.
