Big Papi at 1998
After collecting 3 hits yesterday, September 1, 2013, against the Chicago White Sox, "Big Papi", David Ortiz, is now sitting with 1998 career hits, two shy away from 2000.
Ortiz and the Boston Red Sox open a three game series against the Detroit Tigers today, with an afternoon Labor Day game. The Red Sox currently sit in 1st place, 5 1/2 games in front of the Tampa Bay Rays. While the Red Sox play 12 out of their last 24 games in Fenway, it's not a easy schedule, as they play 3 games against Detroit, 7 against the New York Yankees, 3 against the Tampa Bay Rays, 6 against the Baltimore Orioles, 3 against the Toronto Blue Jays and 2 against the Colorado Rockies.
Todays, and every Red Sox game is on WDEA AM !370!
