Another Milestone For Papi: Ortiz Clubs 2,000th Career Hit
" BOSTON (CBS) – The Red Sox bats were alive on Wednesday night, clubbing eight home runs against the Detroit Tigers, but the spotlight belonged to DH David Ortiz.

Entering the night just two hits shy of career hit #2,000, Ortiz wanted to reach that milestone in front of the Fenway faithful before the team hit the road. So in Papi fashion, he went 3-for-5 at the plate with a pair of homers and an RBI double in the sixth inning.

Ortiz hit his first homer of the evening in the fourth inning, and Prince’s “1999″ played as he rounded the bases.

Recap: Red Sox Rout Tigers 20-4

He reached the milestone just a few innings later with his double in the sixth, and received a rousing ovation as he stood on second with the theme from “The Natural” filling Fenway.

Ortiz is the 18th active player to reach 2,000 hits, and is one of three active players (along with Alex Rodriguez and Alfonso Soriano) with at least 2,000 hits, 400 HRs and 1,400 RBIs.
