David Ortiz Hits 300th Red Sox Home Run In 9-3 Loss To Cubs On Saturday

David Ortiz hit his 300th home run with the Boston Red Sox during Saturday night's 9-3 loss to the Chicago Cubs, clubbing a two-run bomb over the Green Monster in left during the fourth inning at Fenway Park.

Ortiz' home run, which came off Cubs ace Carlos Zambrano, vaults his into elite company. With the two-run blast, Oritz now joins Ted Williams (521 HR), Carl Yastrzemski (452 HR), Jim Rice (382 HR) and Dwight Evans ((379 HR) in the Red Sox' 300 home run club.

Ortiz' historic blast can be seen on MLB.com.

In 15 major league season, Ortiz now has 358 career home runs. Ortiz, who has hit five home runs in his last ten games, has hit nine home runs while driving in 22 runs and hitting .294 this season for the Red Sox.

Ortiz would need 33 more home runs this season to reach the historic 400 home run club.
