David Ortiz had himself quite a ballgame in Game 2 of the ALDS hitting two solo home runs off of Rays starter David Price. The first was a no-doubter to right-center that increased the Red Sox lead to 2-0 in the first inning. The second home run came in the bottom of the eighth that extended the Sox lead to 7-4 a drive down the right field line that wrapped around Pesky’s Pole. Not sure if the ball would stay fair Ortiz stood at home plate and observed the ball as it took flight perhaps trying to will it to stay fair. After the game Price told the media he thought Ortiz gawked at it a bit too long.
