Ortiz And Mookie Go 'Yard' As Sox Smite Evil Ones, 4-3

(AP Photo)Jean Machi has to be sent to his room without supper—and without any more opportunities to blow saves. He almost blew another one last night, but Boston hung on for a 4-3 win over The Bronx Embalmers. The Red Sox offense was defined by two home runs—a two-run blast by Mookie Betts (his 13th on the year) and the 495th career HR (a solo shot) by David Ortiz. Jackie Bradley...

Terry Collins didn't challenge double out of fear of HR

New York Mets manager Terry Collins decided against challenging David Ortiz’s pinch-hit, ninth-inning double Saturday. Why? Because giving up a double is better than giving up a home run. Collins told reporters Sunday in New York, via, that he was unsure whether Ortiz’s wall-ball two-bagger — which came during a 3-1 win for the Boston Red Sox — actually cleared...

Ortiz on CC's antics: When I go deep, I put on my show, too

CC Sabathia put on a bravado performance Thursday night that hearkened back to his days of dominance, surrendering only one run in the New York Yankees’ 2-1 home win over the Boston Red Sox. The Yankees pitcher struck out eight over six innings, but perhaps no strikeout was more important than when he fanned David Ortiz in the top of the 5th inning with the game tied at one apiece...

What is wrong with David Ortiz?

David Ortiz is hitting — that is, to the extent he has stood in the batters box with a bat and hit a pitched ball and run towards first base. He is hitting, that is, in that he is and has been a hitter in the technical sense of the term. He is not hitting […]
