Head-first slide knocks Ortiz from game vs. White Sox
Red Sox slugger David Ortiz left Friday night's game against the visiting White Sox with a mild shoulder sprain after an awkward head-first slide into second base during the fifth inning of Boston's 10-3 victory.
With no outs, Crisp had put the Red Sox up 4-3 with a three-run, stand-up triple off White Sox starter Jose Contreras before Ortiz laced a single to right.
