BIG PAPI'S BIG MILESTONES

With his two run blast in the eighth, David Ortiz established not only a single-season personal best for himself, but also a a new single-season best for designated hitters. Ortiz's 42nd homer of the year was his 38th as a DH, eclipsing the mark previously set by Edgar Martinez in 2000.

Papi's 83 homers over the last two seasons are just three behind Jimmy Foxx's club record set back in '37-'38. And his eight multi-homerun games this year are just two behind another Foxx owned club record.

Ortiz continues to make a strong case for himself as the AL MVP. Where would the Sox be without him?
