Eduardo Rodriguez started for the Red Sox. He gave up one run on six hits and two walks while striking out eight in the no-decision. Matt Barnes was the winner in relief. Koji Uehara earned his nineteenth save.
Ortiz started at first base in place of the slumping Mike Napoli. The last time Ortiz started a game at first at Fenway was nearly a decade ago, July 16, 2005. Hanley Ramirez was the designated hitter. Napoli came into the game as a defensive replacement for Ortiz in the top of the eighth inning.
Born in Queens, NYC and lived kind of all over the place from PA to NJ to NYC and back to NJ.
Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball (PBI) and radio (WDHA).
