FINAL: Red Sox 12 Twins 5. While You Were Out Getting Drunk Last Night, David Ortiz Had A Monster Game In Minnesota.
David Ortiz had a friggin monster night. He single-handedly beat the Twins. He drove in more runs than the entire Twins team and finished the night 3 for 4 with 2 home runs and 6 RBI. And I swear, after each home run, I saw him mumble, "suck my dick, Shaughnessy."
Actually, he didnt, but I wish he did. With every passing day, Dan Shaughnessy looks more and more like an asshole. You know that in the back of his mind, Ortiz is using Shaughnessy and his ignorant accusations, as motivation.
I say ignorant because, remember, Shaughnessy didnt ask Ortiz if he had been tested this season. He simply told him that because he was old and Dominican that he must be on steroids. That is an ignorant, borderline racist, thing to say. Yet the dude is still employed by the Boston Globe.
But I digress.
So, Ortiz wasnt the only one who had a big night last night in Minnesota. Dustin Pedroia extended his hitting streak to 10 games, going 2 for 3, and Daniel Nava went 2 for 4 with a 2 run home run.
Ryan Dempster sucked. The dude couldnt even get through 5 full innings in. He went 4.2 innings and allowed 5 earned runs. But it didnt matter.
The Red Sox are now 4-1 on this road trip. Pissa.
