After learning his lesson, Ortiz comes through -- yet again

Wed, 04/09/2014 - 23:00
David Ortiz’s encounter with Neal Cotts in Tuesday night’s eighth inning rendered a result typical of the battles between the Red Sox designated hitter and the Rangers reliever. Cotts won, needing only four pitches to strike out the slugger, and to leave Ortiz 0-for-5 lifetime – with five whiffs and a walk – against the lefty. The Red Sox eventually lost, but as overmatched as he might’ve looked in the moment, it wasn’t an entirely unproductive plate appearance for Ortiz. “That at-bat I had against him the other night,” the DH said Wednesday, “it helped me out to make some adjustments today. “And it worked.” Did it ever. Facing Cotts again, this time with the tying and go-ahead runs on the corners in the eighth, Ortiz applied his adapted approach in a most dramatic fashion. A day after being punched out on a pitch away, he turned on a mistake Cotts left thigh-high over the inner half and crushed it – the arching blast staying fair long enough to clear the right-field foul pole as it soared deep into the grandstands and made 4-2 winners of the Bronx-bound Sox.
