BALTIMORE -- Here is what David Ortiz said after the Red Sox'€™ 6-2 win over the Orioles -- in which he hit a two-run home run -- when asked once again about the presidential "selfie": "€œI mean, like I said, taking a picture with the president is something you don'€™t see happening every day," he said. "I don'€™t know what it is people are trying to mean when it comes down to Samsung. Samsung is a mark that we are all proud to be using it. Technology is something that ... I just got into the Samsung planet and I love it. I'€™m having fun with it." When asked to confirm what he had just said, Ortiz reiterated, "I'm happy to be using Samsun." So, Ortiz was then asked, who sponsored his home run. "The Sox," he said with a chuckle. "They paid for it, a lot of money." (It should be noted that the home run was Ortiz's 432nd home run, passing Cal Ripken Jr. on the all-time list.)
