David Ortiz and the Red Sox offense stayed hot against the Blue Jays, but this time it was the pitching that couldn’t keep up.
Felix Doubront fell to 8-4 on the year after falling behind early to the Jays, but Big Papi’s two home runs sandwiching a long rain delay will be the story for Red Sox fans. Well, that and Will Middlebrooks officially taking the torch from Kevin Youkilis as the everyday third baseman.
NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is awarding Ortiz our “Papi Power” award after this one, since it was fitting to have a couple of long strikes by the Sox slugger the same day there were some bigger strikes going on at Fenway Park.
