Ellsbury, Red Sox Beat Cardinals 8-7

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) — Jacoby Ellsbury had three hits and a split squad of Boston Red Sox beat the St. Louis Cardinals 8-7 Tuesday.

Ellsbury doubled, drove in a run, scored once and stole a base. He left in the sixth inning and Boston scored four times in the eighth.

Two of Ellsbury’s hits came off Jaime Garcia, who looked sloppy at times in his second start of the spring. Garcia allowed three runs on seven hits and three walks in three innings. He is projected as the No. 2 starter in the St. Louis rotation with Adam Wainwright out after season-ending ligament replacement surgery.
