BOSTON (CBS) – David Ortiz will sit for the fourth straight game as the Red Sox open a three-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies Tuesday night.
The move should come as no surprise, as lefty Cliff Lee is on the hill for Philadelphia, and no DH in the National League.
Ortiz is 0-for-2 with a walk and run scored as a pinch hitter for the first three games of the nine game NL road trip.
With Josh Beckett getting the start for Boston, Jason Varitek will be behind the plate and bat sixth.
