Ortiz homered off Ervin Santana to tie the game at 6-6 in the fifth. "Another gritty rally in the seventh gave the Red Sox the lead. Holt started it with an infield hit. Bogaerts again drew an important walk. This time, Ortiz put Boston ahead with a sacrifice fly to deep right. Pierzynski added an insurance run on a broken-bat RBI single up the middle." --Ian Browne at mlb.com
