Indians top Ortiz, Red Sox 4-3, complete sweep, reach ALCS

Alyssa BaileyOct 21, 2016

Life without David Ortiz officially has begun in Boston, as the 40-year-old designated hitter's career came to an end Monday night at Fenway Park. They sweep the series and advance to the ALCS for the first time since 2007.

Despite the huge numbers Ortiz put up this season, he continued to say it would be his last.

And really, how the heck do you replace a legend like David Ortiz?

Dave Dombrowski made John Farrell sweat it out a bit on Tuesday morning, less than 24 hours after the Red Sox were swept by the Cleveland Indians in the AL Division Series.

Raising his hands high above his head, he tried to clap the Fenway Park crowd into a frenzy one more time. "And now they're one of the final four". He was soon replaced by a pinch runner and left to a standing ovation. It isn't how the Sox or Ortiz would want the season to end, however we still got to witness one of the best to ever play the game.

After signing a $217 million, seven-year contract as a free agent, Price led the team in innings and strikeouts but was second on the staff to 22-game victor Rick Porcello. "Until I do, it's going to be a topic of conversation".

Rockstar's Red logo generates more buzz than most game releases
Red Dead Redemption never made it to the PC, probably because the actual game code was apparently a bit of a mess. The original " Red Dead Redemption " title was released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles in May 2010.

"Given where this team finished past year, there's a lot for them to be proud of", Farrell said. The first was when he heard that Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez had died in a boating accident.

In his final stand Ortiz went 0-2 with a pair of walks.

The Massachusetts Police sent a tweet thanking Ortiz, writing that their forces remember his resilience during the Boston Marathon Bombings. Whether it was the walk-off home run off of Paul Quantrill in the 12 inning of Game 4 or his bloop single walk-off in Game 5 vs Mariano Rivera, we jumped on your back and rode your bat all the way to the finish line.

Ortiz walked on four straight pitches before imploring the crowd to its feet. In the sixth, Crisp hit a two-run home run over the left-field wall to make it 4-1. But he was just 1 for 9 in the series.

"He called me over and said "Jefe!' - he always calls me 'Jefe" - 'You owe me!' " Dombrowski said. "I was cheering so bad".

"I need to get it off my back", Price said of his playoff failures. "Because I wasn't ready to be over with the playoffs".

But in Thursday's 2-2 draw in Austria , Bale was most unsafe delivering a series of long throws towards target man Sam Vokes . No team is unbeatable, but for us to come here and not bring our A game and get a point says a lot about this team.

The playful gesture toward Pedroia is typical of Francona, who develops a deep trust inside the clubhouse with how he treats players. The 2016 Red Sox were an extremely good team.

Solo home runs from Roberto Perez, Jason Kipnis, and Francisco Lindor in Game One. Each gave him a hug. First and foremost is the flexibility shown by Indians manager Terry Francona.

But Dombrowski made clear that he doesn't consider in-game strategy to be the most important job of a manager. "If you don't like it, pitch better". "You want to help the club in any way possible".

But the slugger said he has no regrets about how his career ended.

"He's an icon and one of a kind", Dombrowksi said of Ortiz.
