Of all parting gifts David Ortiz got, Red Sox teammate Jackie Bradley Jr. was most impressed by book of letters from past/present Yankees. Bradley: "You could really tell that they put a lot of thought into that. I mean this in the most respectful way: It might not have been the most expensive gift he's gotten, but I felt like it meant the most. From my standpoint, there couldn't have been a more special gift than that. All those people that was in that book, and we only saw a few of the pages, I can only imagine."

Xander Bogaerts homer is lone Red Sox highlight.

CC Sabathia ends a very good comeback season. A year ago at this time, Sabthia was entering alcohol rehab and his spot in the rotation was in doubt. After barely beating out Ivan Nova for the fifth starter spot in spring training, Sabathia will finish the year with a 3.91 ERA after his 7 1/3 innings, one run, four-hit, eight strikeout and two-walk performance.

In the fourth, David Ortiz walked and was pinch-run for by Brock Holt. Ortiz received a pretty nice cheer as he left the field, but nothing too special. That ends his career at Yankee Stadium. He will probably go down as the most impactful figure in the rivalry since Babe Ruth.

David Ortiz draws a walk and a pinch-runner. Another nice ovation as he jogs off the field at Yankee Stadium in the top of the fourth inning. He went 0-for-10 with two walks and four strikeouts in his final series in the Bronx.

Yankee Stadium has become Fenway South. Xander Bogaerts just tied the game in the fourth inning with a home run and the crowd erupted. It is 1-1.

David Ortiz got mostly a standing O in his first at-bat, then a K. CC Sabathia just struck him out after a lot of fans -- many with Red Sox jerseys on -- cheered him at Yankee Stadium.
