PAWTUCKET, R.I. (AP) - Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz had two hits in his first rehab game with Triple-A Pawtucket and ran the bases without pain.
That was the best news the Red Sox could have hoped for Thursday night.
Ortiz's baserunning might have overshadowed his performance at the plate even though he was 2 for 3 with a run scored and an RBI in Pawtucket's 5-4 victory over the Rochester Red Wings.
Ortiz has been sidelined since July 16 with an Achilles tendon injury.
