David Ortiz matches up with legend Ted Williams

BALTIMORE — David Ortiz stroked his 30th home run Friday night and now has seven 30-homer, 100-RBI seasons in his 17-year career, all in his 11 seasons with the Red Sox.

Want to put that in some kind of perspective? In 19 seasons with the Red Sox, Ted Williams also had seven 30-homer, 100-RBI seasons (and eight 30-homer seasons all together). So in eight fewer years, Ortiz tied Williams in the 30-100 category.
