Ortiz hits 536th HR, ties Mantle for 17th on career list

BOSTON (AP) Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz hit his 536th career homer on Monday night to tie Mickey Mantle for 17th on baseball's all-time list.

Ortiz has 33 homers this season, which he says will be his last.

The 40-year-old Ortiz hit a solo shot in the sixth inning off Baltimore's Oliver Drake to give Boston a 10-2 lead. As the Fenway Park crowd continued to cheer, Ortiz came back out of the dugout to tip his cap.

Mike Schmidt is next on the career list, with 548.
