BOSTON -- The Red Sox sent David Ortiz off before his final regular-season game with a promise that he will return.This week, in the playoffs, when he goes for his fourth World Series title.And next year, when they hang his No. 34 from the Fenway facade among the teams retired numbers.During a pregame ceremony Sunday attended by Red Sox greats like Carl Yastrzemski and teammates from Ortizs three World Series championships, the ballclub honored the soon-to-retire slugger by draping a Dominican flag over the Green Monster and bringing out his father -- Big Papis real Papi -- to join him on the diamond.Ortiz broke into tears when he mentioned his late mother before gathering himself to thank his teammates and members of the organization from owner John Henry to clubhouse attendant Pookie Jackson. He also thanked the fans -- dropping to one knee and tipping his cap to the crowd -- along with the media, Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred and Dominican Republic President Danilo Medina, who were both in attendance.He changed the Red Sox, Manfred said before the game. He was a key part of the amazing three wins here. It changed the course of the franchise.But I also think that he changed the city. He became a symbol of the strength of the city and will always be remembered for that.Ortiz announced in November on his 40th birthday that this would be his final year, setting up a season-long farewell tour around the major leagues.As the home team, the Red Sox get to go last.Here are some other sights and sounds from Ortizs farewell:THE GAMEOrtiz had a chance to tie the game in the ninth, when he came up with one out and nobody on and the Red Sox trailing by one. He hit a weak nubber in front of the plate.In all, he was hitless in four at-bats as Toronto won 2-1 and clinched the ALs top wild-card berth.Im exhausted. Im not going to lie to you, he said. This past week caught up to me. Im so happy that its over so I can focus on whats coming up next -- the playoffs.Losses in five of their last six games cost the Red Sox a chance at home-field advantage when their AL Division Series against Cleveland begins on Thursday. Boston will instead host Game 3 on Sunday and Game 4 on Monday, if necessary.DECKED OUTThe Green Monster scoreboard read: Thanks, Big Papi. Banners hung from the light stanchions above. And Ortizs image was mowed into the center-field grass, as it has been for the entire season-ending series against the Blue Jays.Fans in the right-field bleachers held up cards that formed Ortizs No. 34 during the ceremony. During the game, the cards revealed the message: Thanks, Papi.And of course there were the three World Series championship banners behind home plate, all thanks in part to Ortiz. During the ceremony, Mike Lowell, Pedro Martinez and Jonny Gomes carried out the World Series trophies.Mary J. Blige sang the Star-Spangled Banner, as she did before Game 1 of the 2013 Series. The Red Sox also played the Dominican national anthem in Ortizs honor, and Medina threw out a ceremonial first pitch.THE DARK CLOUDManfred was at Fenway Park on the day several playoff positions were still to be determined and defended Ortiz from a report -- without confirming it -- that he tested positive for a performance-enhancing drug a decade ago.The New York Times reported in 2009 that Ortiz was among those who tested positive in a 2003 survey test designed to determine the degree of steroids use in baseball. Ortiz has denied using performance-enhancing drugs, but neither the union nor the commissioners office has explained the report.Players and management successfully fought a legal battle to keep the list and samples secret after federal agents seized them.Manfred said on Sunday there were at least 10 names on the list whose inclusion could be doubted for legitimate scientific reasons.Even if you were on that list, it was entirely possible that you were not a positive, the commissioner said.Asked if there was anything baseball could do to help Ortiz clear his name, Manfred said the results have been destroyed.Since Ortiz did not violate baseballs rules, the only damage from the report is to Ortizs legacy and his Hall of Fame candidacy when he reaches the ballot in five years. Manfred said it was up to the voting members of the Baseball Writers Association of America whether to induct players who have formally tested positive for steroids.But Ortizs case is different, he said.In situations where it is leaked, that is unfair to the player, Manfred said. And I think it would be wrong to exclude them.COMMISSIONER PAPI?Manfred said Ortiz stopped by his office last offseason to say he planned to retire. The Red Sox slugger again went to the commissioners office when the team was in New York last week; this time, he asked to use a conference room, where he met with beneficiaries of the David Ortiz Childrens Fund and other members of the community.I got the biggest kick out of just watching this stream of people coming through, Manfred said. Each one was a better story than the last.Manfred said he planned to talk to Ortiz about serving the sport in some capacity after he retires. Major League Baseball plans to run a commercial in English and Spanish during the playoffs that ends, Thanks, Big Papi! Youre not walking away, youre walking off.ON THE STREETMassachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker said the bridge over the MassPike that leads from Kenmore Square to Fenway Park would be renamed in Ortizs honor; Mayor Marty Walsh said the city would do the same for a street that leads from the ballpark to another train station.The Red Sox Foundation and the teams owners have pledged $1 million to the David Ortiz Childrens Fund. He was also given a gold-plated bat.The governor said he was surprised to find that there was a bridge left in the state that hadnt already been named for someone -- and it was right next to the ballpark. It was a natural to dub it Big Papi David Ortiz Bridge.Walsh said the weekend was bittersweet.We have great memories, he said, and there are still great memories to be made.The Red Sox begin the playoffs on Thursday in Cleveland.

United.The Atomic Ant has scored 11 times in league competition this season and he appears to be in top form for TFCs match against the Columbus Crew Sunday at BMO Field.

It becomes, how do we not give up free kicks in dangerous areas? Because hes a guy that, if you give him a couple looks, he can hurt you.The approach this week in preparing for Giovinco has been heavily weighted toward video work, Berhalter said, because if you dont have anyone that can recreate Giovincos free kick, its going to be very difficult to practice that.This is the Italian forwards second season in MLS and the Crew has done a decent job of defendiing against him.dddddddddddd He has one goal and one assist in four games against Columbus.Toronto FCs lineup has been augmented even with the absence of midfielders Will Johnson and Michael Bradley and goalkeeper Clint Irwin, all out with injuries.TFC (7-7-6) signed Canadian international Tosaint Ricketts last week and he made his debut as a second-half substitute last Saturday against D.C.
