Ortiz leaves game for family emergency

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Boston slugger David Ortiz left the ballpark early due to what Red Sox manager John Farrell called a family emergency.

"He's fine. He got called away from this game," Farrell said. "There was a family emergency that he had to attend to and he jumped on a flight late this afternoon. He should catch up with us in Pittsburgh."

Even without him, Boston was able to rally past Kansas City for an 8-4 victory on Sunday as Daniel Nava hit a grand slam and Xander Bogaerts added a three-run shot.
