NEW YORK -- Jacoby Ellsbury set an obscure major league record on his 34th birthday.
He reached base on catcher's interference for the 30th time, passing the mark that had been held by Pete Rose.
Ellsbury set the season catcher's interference mark with 12 last season and has four this season.
Rose, baseball's career hits leader, had 15,890 plate appearances. Ellsbury reached the record in 5,308.
