Analysis: Boston's regular designated hitter hasn't started a non-interleague game at first since Aug. 5, 2006, when the Red Sox played at Tampa Bay.
July 4 11:32 AM PT12:32 PM MT1:32 PM CT2:32 PM ET14:32 ET18:32 GMT2:32 11:32 AM MST1:32 PM EST2:02 PM VEN22:32 UAE1:32 PM CT-Ortiz was 2 for 3 with two RBIs on Friday.
Analysis: In truth, 'Big Papi' has made his fantasy owners unhappy this year with a pathetic .753 OPS. Maybe he will redeem himself after the All-Star break.
July 3 9:19 AM PT10:19 AM MT11:19 AM CT12:19 PM ET12:19 ET16:19 GMT0:19 9:19 AM MST11:19 AM EST11:49 AM VEN20:19 UAE11:19 AM CT-Ortiz drilled a three-run bomb Thursday.

Analysis: Ortiz, scuffling with a pathetic .236 average, homered leading off the fourth to move into 28th place on the career list. "I got to meet `The Man' (Musial) one time a long time ago," Ortiz reminisced.

Ortiz kept his back to reporters, sitting in front of his locker as he reluctantly fielded questions about why he wasn't starting against Orioles lefty Wei-Yin Chen.
Analysis: He said: ''What do you want me to tell you? You have to ask the manager. ... I do what I get to be told. I'm not playing today, so I'm here in case he needs me later.'' Oritz is batting .114 against left-handers this season and .219 overall, although he's hitting .308 lifetime against Chen.

The remarks by the 39-year-old designated hitter come in a column Thursday for The Players' Tribune, a website founded by Derek Jeter that gives professional athletes a platform.
Analysis: Ortiz also voiced his displeasure that he will ''always be considered a cheater'' to his detractors. Ortiz contends nobody in baseball has been tested more for performance-enhancing drugs than he has - more than 80 times since 2004. Ortiz writes: ''I have never failed a single one of those tests and I never will.''
