Ellsbury leads Red Sox to 5-3 win over 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 seven innings, allowing five runs on 10 hits and a walk.
