G122: Red Sox 10, Astros 7

Astros  - 212 100 001 -  7 12  1
Red Sox - 012 040 03x - 10 13  0
David Ortiz hit two home runs and a double, and drove in six runs, as the Red Sox rallied from being down 5-1 and 6-3.

Ortiz's first dong of the night - a two-run shot to center in the third - was his 400th as a Red Sock. He hit #401 two innings later. It was his 45th multi-HR game.

David Ortiz became the quickest Red Sox hitter to reach 400 home runs: Ortiz (1,630 games), Ted Williams (1,745), and Carl Yastrzemski (2,804).

Red Sox stat guy Jon Shestakofsky reports: "This is the first time David Ortiz has had 3 different multi-RBI hits in a game."

Ortiz now has 459 career dingers, tying him with Adam Dunn for 35th place all-time.

Daniel Nava went 3-for-4 and drove in two runs. Dustin Pedroia and Mike Napoli each had two hits. And four Boston players - Brock Holt, Pedroia, Ortiz, and Napoli - scored two runs each.

Rubby De La Rosa lasted only four innings (4-9-6-4-2, 89).
