BOSTON -- The Yankees successfully challenged a call at second base in the sixth inning of Friday's game against the Red Sox, resulting in Jacoby Ellsbury being credited with his 29th stolen base of the season.

Ellsbury walked to lead off the inning against Boston starter Anthony Ranaudo, then broke for second base with one out and Mark Teixeira batting.

Ellsbury popped up on the slide and briefly stumbled before getting back to the bag, but he was called out on the initial slide by second-base umpire Paul Schrieber, who ruled that Ellsbury had been tagged by shortstop Xander Bogaerts.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi challenged the call, and after a review of one minute and 46 seconds, it was determined that Ellsbury slid in safely ahead of Bogaerts' tag.

Ellsbury moved to third on a Teixeira groundout and scored on Carlos Beltran's single to center field, trimming Boston's lead to 3-2 at the time.

Girardi and the Yankees have made 20 challenges this season; 15 have been overturned, three have been confirmed and two have been ruled to stand.
