'It's an honor.' Red Sox retire David Ortiz's No. 34

'It's an honor.' Red Sox retire David Ortiz's No. 34”

With a very muggy afternoon and temperatures in the mid-80s, numerous Red Sox regulars took BP in shorts - something seldom seen at home games.

- The Boston Red Sox retired David Ortiz's No. 34 in a pre-game ceremony and then went out and built a 7-1 lead en route to a 9-4 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Friday night.

For 14 years, David Ortiz looked to the right-field facade in Fenway Park during batting practice, believing he could hit a home run off the retired numbers but never thinking his would someday be among them.

Price also had better command on Saturday with the one walk compared to four, four and three in his previous three starts, respectively.

Ramirez tossed six one-run innings and got some help from a balanced Angels offense in a 6-3 win over the first-place Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park.

He is 1-2 in four June starts, allowing 28 hits and 18 earned runs in 19 innings - and lasted just three-plus innings in his last start, losing to the Kansas City Royals.

The Los Angeles Angels come into this one looking to take the series after winning game two by a final score of 6-3, evening up the series at one win apiece.

With the Sox trailing 3-1 in the seventh, Fernando Abad relieved Price, and the reliever promptly gave up an RBI double to Cameron Maybin. "You can't go out there and put two guys on before basically the game starts".

"Well, his sixth start (back)", Farrell said.

"I have been around for a long time and it's been a blessing being part of Boston", Ortiz said.

Twins 4, Indians 2: Brian Dozier hit a leadoff homer off closer Cody Allen to break an eighth-inning tie and Minnesota defeated Cleveland for the second straight day. "I don't have enough words to say how proud I am, and how proud of a papa how I feel today".

Boston president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said Friday that Peralta will play third base for Triple-Pawtucket and is expected to report on Monday. This will be Bridwell's first career start against Boston.

The designated hitter helped the Red Sox win three World Series championships, including their first in 86 years in 2004. The Red Sox got it back in the second when Moreland led off the frame with his 10th home run of the season.
