Papi Steals Manny’s Thunder, Spot On Red Sox List
[photogallerylink id=28481 align=right]David Ortiz hit his 274th homer for the Red Sox to tie Manny Ramirez for fifth on the franchise’s all-time list, leading Boston to a 10-6 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night in Ramirez’s first game back since his acrimonious departure from the team he helped win two World Series titles.
Adrian Beltre hit a two-run homer in a seven-run fifth inning that helped 22-year-old left-hander Felix Doubront (1-0) win in his major league debut. J.D. Drew also homered for Boston before leaving with a strained right hamstring in the third inning.
Daniel Bard earned his third save, striking Ramirez out looking with two on and two out to end the game.
