BOSTON (AP) — Red Sox slugger David Ortiz has hit his 537th home run, moving past Mickey Mantle for 17th on baseball’s career list.

Ortiz, who says this will be his final season, homered into the center-field bleachers Thursday night at Fenway Park against New York Yankees reliever Adam Warren in the eighth inning to cut Boston’s deficit to 5-2.

Mike Schmidt is 16th on the home run list with 548.
