David Ortiz named World Series MVP
|10.31.13 at 12:48 am ET|
David Ortiz‘s incredible performance has earned him World Series MVP honors. The Red Sox designated hitter posted a .688/.760/1.188 line in the series to go along with two home runs, six RBIs and seven runs scored.
Ortiz reached base 19 times in the series, breaking the record for a six-game World Series. His 11 hits were one shy of the record for most hits in a six-game World Series. At one point, he reached base in nine straight plate appearances, tying a World Series record. His .688 average was the second-highest in World Series history.
After pitching to him for most of the series, the Cardinals finally decided to take the bat out of Ortiz’s hands in Game 6, walking him four times, three intentionally. That tied a postseason record.
