Not the way any of us wanted to see David Ortiz end his career. Boston gets swept out of the playoffs by their former manager’s new team, Cleveland Indians. Ortiz had a chance in the eighth with one on and no outs. Sadly, Cody Allen didn’t give him his movie moment as he worked around him and walked him on four pitches. Ortiz would be pinch ran for and that’s all she wrote.
Ortiz is the greatest designated hitter to ever live and he’s one of the most clutch postseason hitters of all-time. Ortiz had so many big moments from leading the 3-0 comeback versus New York or the grand slam against Detroit.
