Ain't We Lucky We Got Him? David "Florida" Ortiz provides some Good Times at Fenway. His 2-run home run in the 12th gave the Red Sox 6-4 win over the Blue Jays. It also saved the Sunday bacon of Terry Francona who made a few (dare I say it?) Gumpesque moves -- not having Varitek bunt in the 10th and letting Bobby "BM" Jones throw 8 pitches (all of them balls; what a surprise!) to start the Toronto 11th were particularly egregious. Mark Malaska mopped up Jones's mess and kept things quiet until Ortizzle unloaded in fine style. Box.
