BOSTON -- David Ortiz takes as much joy in punishing the New York Yankees today as he did 10 years ago.
Ortiz has played such an integral role in the rivalry with the Yankees in his 14 seasons with the Boston Red Sox, and he added another memorable moment Friday night with an eighth-inning two-run home run as the Red Sox beat the Yankees 4-2 in their first of 19 meetings this year.
"It never died, it never died," Ortiz said about the thrill of playing the Yankees. "That was a hell of a game."
