David Ortiz Stays Patient, Waits for Pitch and Hammers Home Run

David Ortiz Stays Patient, Waits for Pitch and Hammers Home RunAll Daisuke Matsuzaka had to do was start pounding the strike zone, according to David Ortiz.

“That’s when his best comes out,” Ortiz told Heidi Watney on Red Sox Extra Innings after the Red Sox beat the A’s 6-4 on Wednesday.

Big Papi backed Dice-K’s 6 2/3 innings of three-run ball by going 2-for-2 with a double and home run that provided the go-ahead run. He was also intentionally walked.

“I saw everything on that at-bat,” he said of the at-bat that resulted in the home run. “I’m still looking for my pitch. It doesn’t matter what I see from the pitches, and he gave it to me and I didn’t waste it.”
