Big Papi Fun Stat Of Day

With the first inning blast in last night's win against the Tigers, David Ortiz has 107 Extra Base Hits (58 2B, 1 3B, 48 HR) in the last 162 games he's started.   The only players to have more than 107 XBH hits in a season are Babe Ruth, with 119 in 1921 and Lou Gehrig, with 117 in 1927, both in 154-game seasons.

With this remarkable end of career performance, he's moved from 26th to 12th in career XBH and has a chance to finish 8th.

With the doubles, he's gone from 27th to 11th on the all-time list.

Driving in 153 runs moves him from 43rd to 22nd on the career list.
