MLB: Boston Red Sox's David Ortiz Sets DH Hits Record

Jul 11 2013, 10:11pm CDT | by

Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz surpassed Harold Baines for most hits by a designated hitter on Wednesday.

Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz is officially in the record books once again. 

Ortiz surpassed Harold Baines for the most number of hits by an MLB designated hitter on Wednesday. Ortiz achieved the feat in a road game against the Seattle Mariners in the second inning when he sent back an Aaron Harang pitch into left center for his 22nd double of the season. That was his 1,689th hit which triggered a standing ovation from fans in Safeco Field. The Red Sox went on to win, 11-4.

Teammate and second baseman Dustin Pedroia congratulated Ortiz on Twitter. His message read,"Congrats to the big man @davidortiz pretty special!!!! With plenty more rockets to come!!!!!"

Big Papi wasn't done. He then belted a two-run home run in the third inning for good measure which wasn't a surprise to manager John Farrell. 

"David obviously sets the record and then he comes up with a two-run homer to give us a little bit more breathing room."

Ortiz said it's great to be mentioned in the same breath with some of the game's greatest hitters. 

"It was great. The fans, they look forward to watching guys breaking records and getting to a certain level.

"It's good to be mentioned with some of the greatest hitters that ever played the game. I used to love to watch Edgar (Martinez). He was a wonderful hitter."

Mariners manager Eric Wedge said opposing teams cannot afford to make any mistakes against Ortiz when he's at the plate. 

"It's tough. If you make a mistake to him, he's going to make you pay."

It was definitely a good day for Ortiz. Aside from the record he set, he also celebrated the birthday of his son.

Jake Peavy: Giants’ Pablo Sandoval Has ‘David Ortiz Spirit’ In Playoffs

Oct 22 2014 10:36am CDT | Source: Yardbarker: MLB

Pablo Sandoval makes a huge impact, no pun intended. Sandoval has a track record of postseason success with the San Francisco Giants. He earned World Series MVP honors in 2012 and currently is seeking his third title in five seasons. According to Giants teammate Jake Peavy, Sandoval’s “it” factor in October is something few players across Major League Baseball possess. “Pablo is as big time of a player as I’ve played wit ...

We’ll have more goodies for you next week as we get closer to the 10-year anniversary of the storybook 2004 Red Sox championship, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t pause to recognize perhaps the most important date in that fairy tale run: Oct. 17, 2004 -- the night of Game 4 of the ALCS. Exactly 10 years ago tonight, the Red Sox -- trailing three games to none -- rallied off Yankees legend M ...

Red Sox offseason primer: DH

Oct 16 2014 1:51pm CDT | Source: espn red sox

BOSTON -- The hard part is not coming to the plate four times a night. David Ortiz still can hit. The hard part is coming soon, in the offseason, pushing himself one more time to do the work necessary to be the player he is. The disciplined diet. The training regimen that becomes more punishing the older he gets. The mental commitment to go all-in, at age 39, ignoring the temptations of the comfor ...

Finding the all-time postseason walk-off champions

Oct 14 2014 8:01am CDT | Source: SBNation

Which team has won the most postseason games in their final at home? The Yankees. But there's more to it than that ... On Sunday night, Kolten Wong hit a walk-off home run in Game 2 of the National League Championship Series. Writers were quick to tweet out other recent Cardinals walk-off hits. There was the famous obstruction call from last year's World Series. There was the famous David Freese homer in 2011. There was the even more famous Ozzie Smith h ...

Orioles turn contrasts in defensive ability into performance art

Oct 5 2014 3:53pm CDT | Source: SBNation

Or something. Delmon Young is playing left field for the Baltimore Orioles in a playoff game. This isn't an interleague thing, where David Ortiz has to pretend he's a first baseman for seven innings. Young is actually playing left field in an American League ballpark. On purpose. As you might expect, that brought up a situation like this: Hypnotic. Instead of cutting the ball off and holding Alex Avila to a single, Delmon delmonned the ball into a double. After a sac ...

MLB Playoff Schedule 2014: Full TV Info and Key Wild Card Round Storylines

Sep 30 2014 4:00pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

One thing that defines Major League Baseball's postseason is the unpredictable nature of the short series. Even though the regular season is built on three- and four-game series, it's harder to pin down what happens now because the separation between the best and worst teams is minimal.  Despite what Las Vegas odds will tell you about the World Series favorites (h/t Odds Shark), the Los Angeles Dodgers are not more than twice as likely to win a championship tha ...
