Fenway Park, Boston, Massachusetts
BOSTON -- Facing his former team was just another game for Adrian Gonzalez. His current team's 10-run inning was something special.Gonzalez drove in three runs with a single and double in the big seventh inning and the hot-hitting Boston Red Sox rolled to a 14-5 win over the struggling San Diego Padres on Monday night.
Chase Headley went 4 for 5 for the Padres. ... Ortiz has hit in 14 straight games at Fenway Park. ... Boston's Josh Beckett, the major league leader with a 1.86 ERA, was scratched from Tuesday night's start and replaced by Alfredo Aceves. ... Black made his major league debut at Fenway on Sept. 5, 1981, for the Seattle Mariners. He faced one batter, Rick Miller, throwing a wild pitch before allowing a single. ... Francona is considering using first baseman Gonzalez in the outfield for some games during a nine-game interleague trip to Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Houston. That would give designated hitter Ortiz a chance to play first base rather than miss all the games. Gonzalez has played the outfield just once in his 929 games -- making three putouts and an error on Sept. 30, 2005, for the Texas Rangers against the Los Angeles Angels. ... Padres catcher Nick Hundley broke an 0-for-17 slump with a single in the eighth.

From Elias: The Red Sox scored 14 runs in a game for the sixth time this season, most in MLB. The only team in the last 60 years to have at least 6 instances of 14 runs in a game through the first 72 games of a season was the 2000 Rockies.
David Ortiz' 14-pitch single in the 1st inning was the longest plate appearance in the majors this year to end with a base hit. There had been three other 14-pitch PA's (all outs); Derek Jeter's 15-pitch flyout to lead off a game in Anaheim on June 3; and Ruben Tejada's 16-pitch walk against the Phillies on May 27.
