Obviously, we'll turn the page on this one.
Ortiz retired last season after a 20-year major league career, including 14 years in Boston. Lucas Duda went 3-for-5 with a solo shot, while Wilmer Flores and Michael Conforto each added three hits and two RBIs to the rout. "He's everything", Ramirez said. "I was in the same clubhouse with him a week and half ago or whatever and we were talking pitching".
During Friday's retirement ceremony Big Papi confirmed that he will, in fact, work with the organization, saying, "it will happen".
"Definitely, definitely, definitely", he said. "Look, there was not going to be any way for me to take my performance to the highest level without the love and support you showed me every day".
They no longer have a consistent home run threat in the middle of the order, although they're hopeful that Hanley Ramirez, Ortiz's slow-starting protégé who hammered his 10th homer of the season in the fourth inning against the Angels, might finally start heating up.
The lanky right-hander with a knack for thriving after a midseason move made his Red Sox debut on Sunday against the Angels, and it undoubtedly calmed some nerves on Yawkey Way. "A couple of pitches that cut his night short, but he was crisp throughout".
A Nationals 18, Reds 3: Michael Taylor homered twice among his four hits, Trea Turner finished 5-of-5 with a walk, and Washington beat visiting Cincinnati. Fister, projected to throw around 90 pitches, instead tossed 105 (68 strikes). Across 15.2 innings, he allowed 16 hits while striking out 10 batters.
Los Angeles scored three runs in the seventh, but cooled off after Porcello left.
The two actually have history together with Miller ejecting Farrell two other times prior to Saturdays ejection.

Martin Maldonado's RBI single gave Los Angeles a 1-0 lead. Dustin Pedroia, who was only expected to play on an emergency basis, returned to the lineup a day earlier than expected after missing three straight games with a bruised back.
"It's unacceptable", he said.
"It was much needed and Parker just keeps coming in and keeps us in games in some pretty tough places", said Angels manager Mike Scioscia. "You're family", Pedroia said.
Hall of Famers Carl Yastrzemski, Pedro Martinez, Wade Boggs and Jim Rice - whose numbers preceded Ortiz's to the Fenway facade - were the only ones who could know how he felt. You're not our teammate, you're not our friend.
Yusmeiro Petit earned his first save, going two scoreless innings.
He has never pitched at Fenway or faced the Red Sox or any of the team's active hitters. In his career, Fister is 3-3 with a 2.78 ERA and 48 strikeouts against the Angels. They will be playing to reset that at Dodger Stadium on Monday.

Miami also announced agreements Friday with No. 36 overall pick Brian Miller ($1,888,800) and No. 51 pick Joe Dunand ($1.2 million). But it was the first game Ortiz attended since he walked off the field for the final time as a player last October.
On Wednesday, the Angels had to decide whether to call up Doug Fister or release him, per the terms of the deal he signed last month.
