Another Long Shot

David Ortiz just hit a massive home run out of Hiram Bithorn stadium. His bat flip was one of the funniest I have ever seen. It's his third hit of the WBC, all home runs. So he's batting .214, but slugging .857. The Dominican Republic is beating Cuba, 6-0 in the 5th.

Update, 6th inning: Cuba brings in a lefty to face Ortiz with 2 outs, bases loaded. Shows bunt on 3-0, doesn't swing. Walks in a run. 7-0.

Update: Video of the HR and batflip can be found here.
