David Ortiz went 1-for-6 with a double, two RBI, a run scored and a walk during the Red Sox' 19-inning 5-4 loss to the Angels on Saturday.
Ortiz is now hitting just .167 with two extra-base hits in the month of August, which has dropped his second half batting average under the Mendoza Line (.197 BA). Despite his recent struggles, Ortiz is still sitting with 26 home runs and 84 RBI as he remains on pace to put up 30-plus home runs and 100-plus RBI for the second straight season.

Ex-coach Josh Heupel talked Sam Bradford out of quitting.
Not the most encouraging news if you are an Eagles fan as Bradford is now your starting QB and was a decision away from ending his career. The former St. Louis Ram has torn an ACL twice in his six year career and never fully developed into the number one overall talent that he garnered. He gets a fresh start in Philly after being traded for Nick Foles and joins Chip Kelly's high powered offense that has been revamped for 2016. Analysis: Rob Trayah
