After missing two games, Papi returns to lineup

TORONTO -- David Ortiz was back in the lineup on Wednesday after missing the previous two games with a bruised right foot. Big Papi singled twice and drove in a run during a 5-2 loss to the Blue Jays at Rogers Centre.

Ortiz has now reached base safely in 13 straight games. In the bottom of the fourth, Ortiz went up the middle on a fourth-pitch curveball from Toronto starter Marcus Stroman to record Boston's first hit. In the sixth, he sent a first-pitch heater to right field, cashing in David Ross to give the Red Sox a temporary 2-1 lead.
