Jacoby Delivers Back To Back Walk Off Game Winners

Oregon St. alum Jacoby Ellsbury is having a heck of a week for the Boston Red Sox. Tuesday night, Ellsbury came through with a walk-off game winning hit to lift the Red Sox to a 3-2 win over the Cleveland Indians. Delivering a game winning hit at Fenway Park constitutes a career highlight for any baseball player, never mind doing it for the home team.

But Jacoby was just warming up. Last night, with the game tied at 3-3, Ellsbury came to the plate in the bottom of the 9th. inning again. Problem is there was no one on base to drive in. But it was actually no problem; Ellsbury drove a 0-1 count pitch over the fence in dead center to earn a game ending home run trot, and pick up the win for the Red Sox.

Whether Pat Casey comes back to coach Oregon St. next year, or takes a desk job while someone else takes over in the dugout, nothing could do more for Beaver recruiting in the first week of August that Ellsbury's back to back walk off game winners, certainly a dream come true for a kid from Madras, OR.

Updated: Here's a look at Ellsbury's rise to prominence as an MVP candidate by the Boston Herald.
