David Ortiz continues his assault up the Red Sox history books.

Ortiz was at it again Wednesday night, clubbing his 30th home run of the season, and fourth in his last five games.

For Ortiz, it's his eighth season of 30-plus home runs, all with the Red Sox. That ties him for the most 30-homer seasons in club history with - yup, Ted Williams.

This coming on the heels of Ortiz cracking his 400th home run in club history on August 16, putting him in a Red Sox class with Carl Yastrzemski and Williams.

Hey, the more times mentioned alongside Williams the better, right?

Ortiz was set to bat in the top of the 9th inning, but was instead pinch-hit for. John Farrell cited general soreness as the reason. [Insert back problems joke for carrying the offense on his back all season.]
