The Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays aren't exactly big fans of each other this season. The last two series between the AL East foes included bench-clearing scuffles and six ejections.

Naturally, David Ortiz decided to rub it in a little Sunday after doing what he does best.

In the top of the third inning, Ortiz crushed a three-run home run to right field, flipping the bat after he knew it was out of the park. He proceeded to slowly trot around the bases.

The 38-year-old designated hitter now has 25 home runs this season and 456 for his career. The three runs would be enough, as the 48-57 Red Sox took down the 51-54 Rays 3-2.
