Ortiz Blasts First Multi-Homer Game Of Playoffs, Angers Price
BOSTON (CBS) – David Ortiz had the first multi-homer game of his incredible playoff career Saturday night, launching two solo blasts in Boston’s 7-4 win over the Rays.
Tampa starter David Price wasn’t really a fan of Ortiz’s show, which is to be expected. He had to watch a solo shot in the first give Boston an early 2-0 lead, and then Ortiz’s second put his team back down by three runs in the eighth.
The fate of Price’s Rays was dim to begin with down 6-4 with Koji Uehara warming in the Boston pen, the landing spot of Ortiz’s first homer, but that second blast all but sealed Tampa’s fate.
