NEW YORK (AP) - The Yankees’ Jacoby Ellsbury reached base on catcher’s interference for the ninth time this season, the most in more than two decades.

Ellsbury grounded to shortstop in the first inning Tuesday night, but his swing knocked off the glove of Baltimore catcher Caleb Joseph, who was charged with an error.

Ellsbury has reached on catcher’s interference the most times in a season since Roberto Kelly’s eight, also for the Yankees, in 1992. Ellsbury has done it 23 times in his career, the most among major leaguers since Pete Rose’s 29, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
