David Ortiz's last at bat in Florida, in Spring Training, was one he'll remember, as will legions of Red Sox fans, as Big Papi homered. It was Ortiz's 1st homer of the Spring. The Red Sox ended up losing to the Twins by the score of 7-4, as reliever Tommy Lane was lit up in the 7th inning, as he gave up 5 earned runs on 4 hits, walking 1 and striking out 1, retiring only 1 batter.
Clay Buchholz pitched well in his final Spring Training start, going 4 innings, allowing 2 hits, 1 earned run on a homer and walked 2 and struck out 2. Buchholz is scheduled to pitch the 2nd game of the season against Cleveland on Wednesday, April 6th.
