With one swing of his bat, David Ortiz moved past three Hall of Famers -- Ted Williams, Willie McCovey and Frank Thomas -- for 19th on the all-time home run list. He reached a milestone 2,000 hits with the Red Sox with his 522nd career homer.

3. This pitching thing isn't too hard

Ryan Goins took the mound for the Blue Jays in Friday's 19-inning marathon. He tossed a scoreless 18th inning and even escaped a bases-loaded jam.
