BOSTON — David Ortiz made sure he got to his daughter's birthday party.
Big Papi might have picked up an extra gift from the field, too.
Ortiz hit a winning double with two outs in the 11th inning after lining a tying triple in the ninth and earlier moving into 20th place on the career home run list, sending the Red Sox past the Astros 6-5 Saturday.
Ortiz was blasted with white powdery spray from his teammates at second after the win. He walked off holding the bag over his head.
Ortiz, 40, quickly left to get to his daughter's party. On the field, he told the team's NESN cable network: "You know when we're playing at home you've got the wonderful feeling from the fans."
Hanley Ramirez was on deck when Ortiz delivered the winning hit and rushed out to celebrate.
"I was trying to tackle him. But man, I couldn't do it," Ramirez said. "Papi, his emotion and how happy he was, he's got energy."
Ortiz broke a tie with Ernie Banks and Eddie Mathews with his 513th homer in the third inning
