Big Papi didn’t invent the art of styling around the basepaths after a home run, but he’s customized it in his own personal way. And don’t expect him to change, even if the Rays don't like it.

David Ortiz fires back at criticism from Rays pitcher Chris Archer

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — When David Ortiz launched a three-run homer that ultimately propelled the Red Sox to a 3-2 victory over the Rays. He enjoyed it. His opponent did not. Your browser does not support iframes. Ortiz decimated an elevated Chris Archer changeup and sent it rocketing into the far reaches of the right […]

Archer takes offense to Ortiz's bat flip

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- With Christmas carols playing weirdly in the background for what the Tampa Bay Rays called "Christmas in July," leave it to David Ortiz to play bad Santa. Not only did Ortiz hit a three-run home run off Rays pitcher Chris Archer that accounted for all of Boston's runs in a 3-2 win Sunday afternoon that ended Tampa Bay's nine-game winning streak, he made the Rays cry foul, too. Archer was offended by Ortiz's exaggerated bat flip and leisurely stroll around the bases, which broke a scoreless tie in the third.

David Ortiz: Trading Jon Lester ‘sounds like a rebuilding … Hopefully he sticks around’

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — David Ortiz, who slammed his fifth homer of the seven-game road trip on Sunday to propel the Red Sox to a 3-2 victory over the Rays, took stock of his team at a time when it’s prepared to return to Fenway Park nine games below .500, with rumors swirling of players […]

Winning Streak Over. Rays lose to Red Sox 3-2.

Joyce and Longo leave a combined 6 on base and finish the day 0 for 7 as the Red Sox snap Tampa Bay's 9 game winning streak. You can't win them all. Although it was starting to seem like it. The Rays' winning streak would be snapped at nine today, on the back of an obscenely-pimped David Ortiz three-run homer. I'll tell you what... for a game that had all of its runs scored in one inning, this one still managed to be as edge-of-your-seat as they come. Papi and a walk-off tease in the ninth had a lot to do with that. Allen Webster was not sharp today in his debut. He struggled to find the...

Red Sox 3, Rays 2: David Ortiz' three-run blast snaps losing streak

David Ortiz took it on his own shoulders to end Boston's losing streak, taking Chris Archer deep for a three-run shot that proved enough to top the Rays Sunday afternoon. The Red Sox snapped their five-game losing streak Sunday afternoon behind some solid results from a shaky Allen Webster and a big homer from David Ortiz. This is certainly one of the best performances Allen Webster has to his name in the majors in terms of runs and innings, but for all that it was a game which highlighted how little seems to have changed for Webster over the last year. He can still dazzle at times with...
