Big Papi Returns Tonight In Texas.
After getting back Jacoby Ellsbury last night, Boston get's another one of their big bats tonight.
David Ortiz will be in the lineup for the first time since August 16th because of Bursitis is his right heel.
Big Papi is hitting .300 with 24 HRs and 79 RBIs.
Ellsbury and Ortiz returning, and Adrian Gonzalez rediscovering his power... it looks like this Red Sox lineup could finally pull forward in this chase for The AL East title.
On a more individual note; David Ortiz is 6 HRs and 21 RBI away from his 7th 30/100 season in a Red Sox uniform. That's 7 out of 9 years.
