However, unlike Tuesday night, Ortiz didn’t do any showboating this time, instead dropping his bat and watching his linedrive two-run homer fly over Nick Swisher's head and into the stands. Ortiz drew the ire of the Stadium crowd -- as well as Joe Girardi -- after he spun upon connecting for a two-run shot off Hector Noesi in the fifth inning.
"I didn't really care for it," Girardi said.
Ortiz responded: "It's not my first time. It's not going to be my last time. So, big deal."
Oh, and so much for all that retaliation/retribution stuff. Burnett threw Ortiz a first-pitch backdoor breaking ball.
