David Ortiz DH BOS 29 Days

David Ortiz went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's win over the Indians.

Ortiz finished with three RBI. Big Papi hasn't been the offensive menace of years past in 2014, but it's hard to argue with a 38-year-old putting up a .256/.357/.484 slash line with 18 homers (fifth in the American League). Ortiz is on pace for 37 homers and 100 RBI, numbers no owner would have turned down in the spring.

David Ortiz and Mike Napoli hit back-to-back homers off Casey Fein in the bottom of the 10th to give the Red Sox a 2-1 win over the Twins.

Fein was trying to close it out for the Twins with Glen Perkins out due to a sore back, but it wasn't meant to be. Ortiz's shot with one out barely squeezed in past the Pesky Pole in right field, and Napoli then went straight out to center to win it. It was Ortiz's 16th homer of the year. He's not hitting singles or doubles of late, mostly because he keeps putting balls right into the teeth of the shift, but his power hasn't gone anywhere.

David Ortiz blasted a game-winning three-run homer off Joba Chamberlain in the ninth inning on Sunday, powering the Red Sox to a 5-3 win.

The Red Sox entered the ninth inning trailing 3-2, but got a leadoff single from Brock Holt and a one-out walk from Dustin Pedroia to set the stage for Ortiz's mammoth blast. It was his lone hit in five at-bats on the evening, but certainly the most important hit of the night. The veteran slugger is now hitting .255/.359/.486 with 14 homers and 38 RBI on the 2014 campaign.
