The Sox will have a two-headed monster at first base because of the absence of a DH when they play at Colorado. David Ortiz has batted .387 with three homers and 6 RBIs, along with an OPS of 1.317 in the playoffs. Kevin Youkilis has matched him, with a .425 batting average and four round-trippers, and an OPS of 1.314. Todd Helton leads the Rockies in spirit, but has not done so at the plate, hitting just .154 in the playoffs. He hit .320 during the season, with 17 home runs and 91 RBIs, and he has hit .300 for 10 straight years.
