Playing his final game at Yankee Stadium, Boston Red Sox icon, David Ortiz(BIG PAPI) is hugged by New York Yankees great, MARIANO RIVERA, in a pregame ceremony honoring ORTIZ. BIG PAPI stuck out and walked as the Red Sox lost 5-1 and was swept in the three game series by the Yankees.
Uploaded are seven selected images from tonight’s Red Sox Orioles game from Oriole Park at Camden Yards. In BIG PAPI’s last game at Oriole Park, the Red Sox defeated the Orioles 5-3, sweeping them in the four game series. The Red Sox were led by a strong performance by DAVID PRICE(17-8) who pitched 7 innings, allowing 3 runs and six hits , walking two and striking out five. The Red Sox have won each of his last nine starts since August 7.
Rookie outfielder, ANDREW BENINTENDI, drove in the go-ahead run in the fifth inning and Hanley Ramirez hit his 29th home run in the 7th inning.
In his last time at bat, DAVID ORTIZ singled. Ortiz went 1 or 3 and walked twice. I sent you two special shots featuring David Ortiz; one with BIG PAPI little MOOKIE; and one capturing his loyal fans.
