David Ortiz Records 2,000th Career Hit With RBI Double in Blowout Win Over Tigers (Video)

Though it was somewhat lost amid the Red Sox endless offensive onslaught, David Ortiz reached a major career milestone Wednesday night.

The designated hitter recorded his 2,000th career hit in the Sox’ 20-4 rout of the Tigers, becoming the 14th Boston hitter to reach the mark and the first to do so since Manny Ramirez in 2006.┬áThe crowd at Fenway Park commemorated the landmark hit, an RBI double in the sixth inning, by giving Ortiz a nearly minute-long standing ovation, which the slugger accepted with a wave of his helmet.

Ortiz was the star of the Red Sox’ most impressive display of offensive power in more than 30 years, going 3-for-5 with four RBIs and two of the team’s eight home runs — tying the club record for homers in a game set back in July 1977.
