Another big blast by you know who

Will David Ortiz ever run out of clutch home runs? Apparently not. For six innings, the Red Sox put runners on and kept finding ways to strand them.

In the top of the seventh, Ortiz took the first pitch he saw from old friend Scott Sauerbeck and promptly deposited it deep into the seats in right-center to tie the game. Naturally, it was a bender from Sauerbeck, who described himself as a "curveball flipping freak" the day he was traded to the Red Sox in 2003.

It would be a big boost for the Red Sox to win this game, as they haven’t really played winning baseball for most of the night. They’ve run into outs and failed to capitalize on oppportunities. But this is what good teams do, right? Win when they aren’t at their best.

Schilling was obviously not at his best either, but at least he kept them in the game, and kept them an Ortiz blast away from tying it.

It was Ortiz’s ninth homer this month, tying him with Manny (April, 2001) for most homers by any Red Sox player in the month of April.

Ortiz’s shot was a mere 412 feet. The guy is ridiculous.

FYI, I’m glad the press box windows are closed at Jacobs Field. It is quite frigid out there tonight. Nice to be able to feel my fingers, unlike that first weekend of the season in Baltimore.

Looks like Manny is starting to hit for power and not a moment too soon.

Manny had been on the ball all day. I was hoping they were going to walk David. When Manny is hitting the ball the other way there isn’t a pitcher alive that can blow it by him. Go Sox
-tim, portland, or.

too bad francoma didn’t pull schilling after the first double in the 7th…then the sox would have still been ahead and he would have picked up the win. 133 pitches and no decision, real sad.

gotta say paps is scary good. paps & papi, that’s the combo…

THIS YEAR I THINK ALOT OF OUR GUYS ARE GETTING THE JOBS DONE
J.PAPELBON, D.ORTIZ, M.LOWELL,
