Besides, there's this: The Red Sox have strangely been not much fun this year and everyone knows it. Manager John "Accountability Is a Two-Way Street" Farrell can't get out of his way on most days, and David Price can't figure out Boston.

For 14 years, David Ortiz looked to the right-field facade in Fenway Park during batting practice, believing he could hit a home run off the retired numbers but never thinking his would someday be among them. He represented the team in 10 All-Star games, and hit 483 of his 541 career home runs in a Boston uniform. Also recognized during the ceremony were representatives from the Dominican Republic, the city of Boston, and family of Minnesota Twins Hall of Famer Kirby Puckett, from whom Ortiz adopted both his No. 34 and his ever-present smile.

Here are some highlights from the ceremony.

Price struggled, yet still earned his second victory of the season on Sunday, giving up three runs on eight hits over five-plus innings of work. He and I had a lot of discussions about what his plan was going to be, and he was ready to be activated to pitch somewhere.

He said his home run was in Big Papi's honor.

Boston's bullpen gave up 2 hits and struck out 3 batters in 2 and 2/3 innings of work. Farrell then got in a heated argument with Miller and was tossed for his first ejection of the season.

Maldonado put Los Angeles on the board first with a two-out RBI single in the opening inning. He is the first Angels starter to win five consecutive road starts since Jered Weaver won six in a row in 2012. Phillips has homered in three straight games after delivering game-winning hits in back-to-back games against Miami on June 17-18, early in the 10-game homestand.

"You're not a friend, you're not a teammate, you're our family", Pedroia said. Jeter met with Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred and Marlins president David Samson in NY on Thursday, and told them he doesn't yet have the necessary money and is still seeking help from other investors.

Los Angeles LHP Tyler Skaggs (right oblique muscle strain) made a rehab start in the Arizona League on Saturday.

"I want to go six and seven innings", he said after that outing.

- The Red Sox were busy making moves official before Saturday's game.

Angels' reliever Cam Bedrosian walked Jackey Bradley Jr.in the next at-bat to load the bases for Christian Vazquez, who reached on a strikeout and a wild pitch to make it 6-3.

Fister, 33, was released from his minor league contract with the Angels at his request on Thursday.
