Francisco Cervelli is having serious control issues.

For the second straight night, Cervelli threw a ball into center field on a steal attempt.

Jacoby Ellsbury took off with two out in the first and Cervelli air-mailed the throw wide of second and into center field. Ellsbury took third on the throw.

For Cervelli, it was his third throwing error in the last two games.

He had two throwing errors in the first two innings on Wednesday as the Red Sox jumped out to a 4-0 lead.

Cervelli is starting behind the dish because Russell Martin is out with a back issue.
