Griffey: Ortiz 'absolutely' should be Hall of Famer

Ken Griffey Jr. said he "absolutely" thinks David Ortiz should make the Hall of Fame, citing the slugger's career numbers while calling him "one of the most feared hitters in all of baseball."

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Tough day for R.A. Dickey as he's out after 3+ innings, his shortest outing of the season, and leaves with bases loaded and down 5-1. He also had some bad luck: Two infield tricklers that went for hits, a bad throw by Justin Smoak on a double play ball, and a liner off Troy Tulowitzki's glove that should have been caught.

Cruz blasts a grand slam to give Seattle lead (0:23)

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Nelson Cruz loves hitting against the Blue Jays and he crushes an R.A. Dickey knuckleball over the center-field fence for a grand slam. Dickey got himself in trouble by hitting two batters to load the bases.
