Bright Side: Ortiz

"He hit his spots all night and then he missed three or four consecutive hitters. Sometimes you need a break, maybe a foul ball. It just happened. He was very good up until that point. It was nothing physical and then he came back and got the hitters after that." -- Tito, being creative, and kind, to Beckett
