David Ortiz Crashes Jake Peavy’s Dugout Interview With NESN (Video)

2,763

Boston Red Sox pitcher Jake Peavy turned in a solid performance Wednesday night against the Pittsburgh Pirates, but he had to share the spotlight with a certain power-hitting teammate.

Making just his second start of the spring, Peavy allowed one run (a solo homer) on four hits, striking out five and walking one in 4 2/3 innings of work. As the right-hander spoke with NESN sideline reporter Sarah Davis in the dugout after the conclusion of his outing, though, the two were interrupted by a smiling David Ortiz, who wanted to dish out some praise to his pitcher.

Check it out in the video above, with Ortiz’s cameo coming just after the 2:00 mark.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
