Terry Francona said David Ortiz was ill and almost scratched from the first game. He will sit out tonight’s game, Francona said, with Manny serving as DH and Wily Mo Pena playing left field. Francona said J.D. Drew will try to play tonight, but he wanted to watch him hit in the cage first before he made that decision.
