If Betts would have come up empty-handed there, Ellsbury likely would have had a triple. And who knows, with a couple of bad bounces in that center field area, it might have been an inside-the-park home run. This play (which occurred with nobody out in the eighth inning) ended up looking pretty huge, as the Red Sox won the game 4-3.
