Boston Red Sox celebrate 500th consecutive sellout at Fenway with win over Florida Marlins
In front of Fenway's 500th straight sellout crowd, Brad Penny picked up his 100th win, giving up three hits and one unearned run in five innings. Jacoby Ellsbury homered in the seventh, but also made the first error of his career in the first.
Marlins - 100 000 000 - 1 6 0
Red Sox - 020 200 11x - 6 9 1
Penny (5-3-1-4-3, 100) danced between the raindrops all night, stranding seven runners, including five at either 2nd or 3rd, in the first four innings. He relied mostly on his fastball, as his breaking stuff was ineffective. Penny retired six of his final seven batters, though, and collected his 100th career victory.
