BOSTON — David Ortiz has become the third player in Boston Red Sox history to hit 400 home runs with the team.
Ortiz connected in the third inning Saturday night against Houston, sending a solo drive into the first row of the center-field seats at Fenway Park for the milestone shot. He then added a two-run homer in the fifth.
Ortiz has 459 home runs in his career, which started with the Minnesota Twins.
