David Ortiz's two-run homer in the first inning was the 497th of his regular season career. (Big Papi has hit 17 career postseason home runs.) Ortiz is the fourth player in Red Sox history to hit 200 homers at Fenway, joining Ted Williams (248), Carl Yastrzemski (237) and Jim Rice (208).

Jackie Bradley tripled home two runs in the second. ... Brock Holt had two hits and a walk. ... Boston is now only one game behind fourth-place Baltimore.

I appreciate your clarity on Ortiz' HR totals - I was always bothered by them not counting postseason stats for "career" numbers - HR, strikeouts, etc. For comparative purposes I understand why, however it just seems inaccurate to me when discussing Papi's total "career" MLB home runs.
