Red_Sox_David_Ortiz_2013With Game 3 of the World Series shifting to St. Louis, where National League rules mean the loss of the designated hitter, Red Sox manager John Farrell is opting to keep star David Ortiz in the lineup at first base, relegating regular starter Mike Napoli to the bench.

The move comes as no surprise, with the red-hot Ortiz having provided the bulk of Boston’s offense in the first two games, in which he was 4-for-6 with two home runs, five RBIs and three runs scored.
