Instead of taking his aggression out on the phone, On Sunday David Ortiz took it out on the Baltimore Orioles’ pitching staff.
The Red Sox’s DH finished the game 4-4 and hitting his 20th home run, in Boston’s 5-0 win over the Orioles. The Red Sox took two out of three in the weekend series. Ortiz wasn’t the only Red Sox player to have a dominate outing in Sunday’s game.
Lester stuck out eight while allowing only four singles in seven innings. The Red Sox contained an Oriole offense that hasn’t hit a homerun in their last two games, both losses. Coming into Sunday’s game, the Orioles led the majors in homeruns.
With the Tampa Bay Rays losing ninth to the Yankees 6-5 today, the Sox moved back into first place in the AL East, a half-game ahead of the Rays.
Now the Red Sox return home Monday to play in a make-up game against pitcher David Price and the Rays. Pitching for the Red Sox will be Felix Doubront. First pitch will be at 6:10 p.m. eastern.
