 CLEVELAND (AP) -David Ortiz's injured knee isn't an issue to Boston manager Terry Francona.
Ortiz said after Monday night's 4-2 loss to the Cleveland Indians in Game 3 of the AL championship series that his right knee was swollen on Sunday but that the swelling subsided. He said he never considered sitting out the rest of the playoffs.
ESPNdeportes.com reported that before Monday's game, Ortiz said, ``After Saturday's game, my right knee was so swollen that I feared I wouldn't play again for the rest of the series.''
``I don't know where that came from,'' Francona said Tuesday, ``but I just talked to David for about 20 minutes today and it didn't even come up.''
Ortiz plans to have surgery on the knee, which has bothered him for much of the season. He was on base three times in Boston's 13-6 loss in Game 2 that ended early Sunday.
``I think I did a lot of running,'' he said. ``I was feeling it.''
He reached base twice in Game 3 and ran hard to first base on a first-inning double play. Ortiz reached base in 20 of 27 plate appearances in Boston's first six playoff games.
