Boston's David Ortiz starting at 1st base

BOSTON (AP) David Ortiz will be using his glove to start a game in Fenway Park for the first time in nearly 10 years.

Boston's regular designated hitter is playing first base and batting cleanup Sunday. He hasn't started a non-interleague game at first since Aug. 5, 2006, when the Red Sox played at Tampa Bay.

This is his first start at first base in Fenway since July 16, 2005, when he started against the New York Yankees.
