    Ellsbury thought it might take a home run to win the game. Jacoby Ellsbury's two-out homer in the 14th inning gave the New York Yankees a 5-4 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday night. Jacoby Ellsbury connected for a two-out, solo home run off Vinnie Pestano in the top of the 14th inning, lifting the Yankees to a 5-4 victory over the Indians on Wednesday night at Progressive Field. The marathon took 4 hours, 51 minutes and featured a second seventh-inning stretch before the Indians batted in the 14th. "That's a tough game to lose for either side because both bullpens did an exceptional job and it came down to one big hit." The win went into the books after the Yankees absorbed a heavy dose of bad news, hours after ace right-hander Masahiro Tanaka boarded a flight to New York and had an MRI exam on his sore right elbow before being placed on the 15-day disabled list.
