Boston Red Sox defeat San Francisco Giants, 9-5

As he emerged to address the media yesterday afternoon, David Ortiz sported a suit jacket adorned with a large sequined scorpion across the back, which served as a gleaming reminder of the potent sting the Red Sox bats displayed in a 9-5 victory over the San Francisco Giants.

From Doug Mirabelli and Coco Crisp (one single apiece) to Ortiz and Manny Ramírez (a combined 4 for 7 with 4 RBIs), the Sox offense displayed renewed life after struggling for a couple of weeks.
