Ortiz crushes one onto Eutaw Street

David Ortiz smashed a homer to right on Monday that was part of Boston’s three-run sixth to tie the score at 5-5.

It has a little more significance than that, though.

The blast traveled past the flag court and landed on Eutaw Street – the 62nd time that has happened in Camden Yards’ 20-year history and 37th time by an opponent. It was Ortiz’s second shot there, the first coming on Sept. 9, 2003 against Damian Moss.

What’s most interesting is that there have been five homers hit onto Eutaw (four by an opponent; one by Chris Davis) in 22 home games this year. The record is eight in one season set in 2008.

So there could be a little history at Camden Yards later this season.
