      Ellsbury leads Red Sox past Royals

      KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Jacoby Ellsbury matched a career high with four hits and drove in a pair of runs to lead the Boston Red Sox to a 5-3 win over the Kansas City Royals on Saturday night.

      Ellsbury had RBI-doubles in the fourth and sixth innings and also stole his major league-leading 42nd base.

      Red Sox starter Felix Doubront gave up three runs on six hits and four walks in four-plus innings

      He was replaced by Brandon Workman (3-1), who picked up his second victory of the week with 1 1/3 scoreless innings. Koji Uehara pitched a flawless ninth to collect his 12th save in 15 chances.

      Royals right-hander Jeremy Guthrie (12-8), who had won his previous four starts, threw a season-high 123 pitches in six innings, allowing five runs on 10 hits and a walk.
