Red Sox-Yankees Preview

(AP) -- Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz isn't swinging the bat like a 40-year-old on the verge of retirement. Nobody knows that as well as the New York Yankees.

After tormenting his rivals last weekend, Big Papi will try to help Rick Porcello become the first Boston pitcher to win his first six starts in three years when the AL East leaders go after a 10th victory in 12 games Friday night at Yankee Stadium.

Though this is his final season, Ortiz is playing a leading role for a Boston team that has averaged 5.8 runs and hit .298 over the last 11 games. The designated hitter is batting .381 with three home runs, four doubles and 10 RBIs over his past 11.
