BOSTON -- John Lackey has watched David Ortiz wreak destruction on playoff opponents before. Brandon Sutter Jersey . He finally got a chance to see it from the same dugout. "I like it a lot better on this side, thats for sure," Lackey said after Ortiz hit two homers to lead the Red Sox to a 7-4 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday and give Boston a 2-0 lead in the AL division series. It was the first two-homer post-season game for Ortiz, who is the only player remaining from the 2004 Red Sox team that won the franchises first World Series title in 86 years. He was also a star of the 07 team that won it all; both times, they opened the playoffs by eliminating Lackeys Los Angeles Angels. "Hes tough this time of year -- any time of year," Lackey said. "Hes a guy that likes bright lights, for sure." Jacoby Ellsbury had three hits and scored three runs for the AL East champions. Dustin Pedroia drove in three runs, and Lackey earned the win in his first post-season start since joining the Red Sox as a free agent in 2010. Ortiz hit his first homer in the first inning, then his second in the eighth to chase Rays starter David Price. "As long as we win, it means a lot," Ortiz said. "Its not over. Weve got to keep on fighting." Tampa Bay will need a victory in Game 3 on Monday in St. Petersburg, Fla., to avoid a sweep in the best-of-five series. The Rays won three win-or-go-home games this week just to reach this round, including Prices complete game in the tiebreaker against Texas to determine the second AL wild-card team. "Im really looking forward to Game 5 here," said Rays manager Joe Maddon, knowing the Rays would have to win the next two to force the series to the limit. "We just went through a week of (our) backs against the wall, so its not new to us. Its going to be difficult. ... But I dont think its impossible by any means." "Boston this time of the year is kind of lovely, and Im looking forward to coming back in a few days." With the situation not yet desperate, Price allowed seven runs on nine hits and two walks, striking out five. He took the mound for the eighth inning, but Ortiz hit his second pitch high over the Pesky Pole, and right-field umpire Chris Guccione signalled it fair. "When he hits two home runs, things are going to revolve around him," Red Sox manager John Farrell said. "Hes the main cog in our lineup." There was no such suspense for Ortizs first homer, which went into Boston bullpen to make it 2-0. Not even right fielder Wil Myers, who misplayed a Big Papi popup into a double in right field in Bostons 12-2 win on Friday, could be blamed for that one. Every Red Sox starter had a hit and scored a run in Game 1. In the sequel, everyone in the starting lineup got a hit except Mike Napoli, who drew two walks. Lackey lasted 5 1-3 innings for Boston, allowing four runs on seven hits and three walks. He struck out six and also hit a batter while getting the win. Koji Uehara struck out the first two batters in the ninth before retiring Myers on a grounder. The most visible -- but hardly the only --defensive goat in Game 1, Myers was razzed by the Fenway Park crowd during every at-bat. The Rays rookie drew a sarcastic cheer after catching an easy fly ball in the fifth, but he had no real problems in the field. Not so for the rest of the Rays. They committed two errors -- a throwing error by second baseman Ben Zobrist and one by catcher Jose Molina in the first, when Ellsbury stole second and took third on the throw. It was that kind of night for Ellsbury, who missed most of September with a broken right foot. After hitting a single and scoring in the first, he reached on a bloop double behind the third baseman in the third to drive in a run, moved up on Shane Victorinos single and scored on Pedroias grounder. He also singled to lead off the fifth and scored on Pedroias double. Tampa Bay made it 6-4 on Yuniel Escobars single, but Ortiz gave Boston back its cushion with a high fly ball that sailed over the right field foul pole that sits just 302 feet from home plate. Escobar, James Loney and Desmond Jennings each had two hits for Tampa Bay. NOTES: The Red Sox also beat the Rays in Game 1 of their last playoff matchup, the 2008 AL championship series. Tampa Bay won Game 2 and won the series in seven games. ... Victorino broke up a double play in the third by upending Ben Zobrist at second base. ... Stephen Drew had an RBI triple in the Boston fourth. Igor Larionov Jersey .Y. -- Florida Panthers captain Ed Jovanovski finally has something to show for all the pain he went through in overcoming a string of injuries that kept him sidelined for much of the past two years. Trevor Linden Jersey . Vonn flew back to Vail, Colo., last week after hurting her surgically repaired right knee at a downhill race in France. "Her knee was swollen again after Val dIsere," U.S. womens head coach Alex Hoedlmoser told The Associated Press. http://www.thecanuckshockeystore.com/Canucks-Jannik-Hansen-Adidas-Jersey/ . TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie tweeted on Monday that Hemsky will be going to market as an unrestricted free agent on July 1. PITTSBURGH -- Bernhard Langer spent 45 anxious minutes Friday night wondering if the driver that he has used the last two years would be healthy enough to make it to work Saturday. Fortunately, a Champions Tour club technician was able to find a replacement screw for the one that busted inside the clubhead at the end of Langers second round at the Senior Players Championship. The "gamer" back in his ever steady hands, Langer moved closer to his third major title on the 50-and-over circuit, overcoming a slow start to shoot a 4-under 66 in the third round and stay in front of hard-charging Kenny Perry at Fox Chapel. "Theres always slight doubts," Langer said. "Youre putting something together. They say its the same, but youre never sure its the same ... I was convinced it was very close to the same. You dont want it to get into your head." It hardly looked like Langer was bothered while moving to 15-under 195 through 54 holes at an event where he has five top-10 finishes but no victories. The two-time Masters hit 10 of 14 fairways and shot a 4-under 31 on the back nine to regain control after briefly losing the lead to Perry. Perry, trying to join Arnold Palmer as the only player to win the Senior Players in consecutive years, was three behind after a 65 he allowed could have been even better. Still, the deficit is hardly daunting for Perry, who trailed Fred Couples by two heading into the final round last June only to emerge with the first major of his professional career. "Hopefully, the results will be the same," Perry said, laughing. Russ Cochran, Joe Durant and Bill Glasson were four back. Cochran had a 63, the low round of the day. Durant shot 67, and Glasson had a 68. Jeff Sluman was at 10 under following a 64 as the field began to spread out behind Langer. While Langers driver was just fine when he walked to the first tee on Saturday, everything else in his game looked shaky early on. The 56-year-old German three-putted the first hole for bogey and couldnt get up and down for par from a greenside bunker on the fifth. With Perry rocketing up the leaderboard in front of him, the unflappable Langer regained control of the tournaament. Alexander Mogilny Jersey. A 30-foot birdie from the back of the green on the par-4 sixth got him going and he backed it up with another birdie on the seventh to bring him back to even par, setting the stage for the strong back nine. After finding himself one shot behind Perry at the turn, Langer put on a clinic. He birdied the 12th then ran off three more birdies from Nos. 14-16, all of them on putts inside 15 feet. Langer has been one of the most dominant players on the Champions Tour since making his debut in 2007. He has won 20 times since turning 50, including the Senior British Open and the U.S. Senior Open in 2010. He has challenged frequently at the Senior Players, where hes never finished worse than 13th in six starts, including a tie for eighth behind Perry last June. This time Langer finds himself in the role of leader, but hell have an eyeful of Perry on Sunday after the streaky Kentuckian put together another scorching round at the par 70 layout. Perry bounced back a methodical 70 in the opening round with a 63 on Friday. He followed it with a roller-coaster 65 that included six birdies, an eagle and three bogeys. "I need to make that a little bit better tomorrow," Perry said. "I need to clean it up a little bit and put on a little bit of pressure." A birdie on No. 14 seemed to have Perry poised for his second straight 63, but he cooled over the closing stretch, bogeying the 16th after his tee shot landed against a tree. Playing into the wind on the uphill par-5 18th, he settled for par, leaving himself and the rest of the field with some work to do to catch Langer. Not that Langer is taking anything for granted. "I still have got to shoot under par tomorrow," he said. "I feel Kenny Perry is going to go under par. Theres still 18 holes to play. Thats a lot of golf." Maybe, but Perry knows Langer isnt going to come back to the pack. Perry estimated it would take a 63 to make things interesting on Sunday. Anything less could turn the round into a victory lap for his good friend. "If he kicks my butt, Ill shake his hand, give him a hug, whatever," Perry said. "Were going to go out and compete and see where the chips fall."
