Reports: Ortiz hospitalized last weekend with heart scare
David Ortiz looked like his familiar self last night, sending a monster home run off Jered Weaver into the right-field seats in Anaheim during the Red Sox' 2-1 win.
But according to Internet reports and an article in The Boston Herald, baseball's home run leader spent Saturday night at Massachusetts General Hospital after experiencing an irregular heartbeat on Friday and Saturday. The Herald reported that the matter did not prove to be a serious problem. Manager Terry Francona would not comment on the issue last night.
Ortiz was back in the starting lineup on Sunday night, blasting a homer during the Sox' loss to the Yankees. He has been heating up again at the plate since the weekend, despite losing the protection of number-four hitter Manny Ramirez for most of the series in Anaheim.
