BOSTON — David Ortiz's last hit wound up being a souvenir. Many in the crowd at Fenway Park wished the ball had stayed on the field.
Ortiz went 4-for-4 with a solo home run and a double that sent a fan flying, Jackie Bradley extended his hitting streak to 27 games and the Red Sox beat the Indians 5-2 Sunday.
Big Papi drove in three runs. His RBI double in the second put the Red Sox ahead 3-2, and when the ball bounced over Boston's bullpen, a fan came charging from his seat and fell into a fence trying to retrieve it.
The 40-year-old slugger was a triple short of a cycle when another ground-rule double bounced into the bullpen near the centerfield triangle. He had thoughts of a cycle rounding first.
"It wasn't on my mind, but when I went around first base and saw everybody going crazy I was like, 'Whoa, I better get it going,' " Ortiz said.
Ortiz has never hit for the cycle.
"I was hoping a fan could slap it back in play," Bradley said. "I think I heard him mutter, 'It's going to be hard to go three with a flat tire.' "
The Red Sox won for the 10th time in 14 games.
Bradley singled in the fifth inning to extend the longest hitting streak in the majors since Colorado's Nolan Arenado had a 28-gamer in 2014.
