Posted: Updated:

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz has hit his 400th career home run, a leadoff drive to right in the fourth inning against Oakland's A.J. Griffin.

The 36-year-old Big Papi's home runs rank eighth among active players and 49th on the all-time list. Next up for him to catch: Hall of Famer Duke Snider with 407.

His 22nd home run of the season for Boston tied the game 1-all Wednesday. Ortiz's 352 home runs and 1,142 RBIs as a designated hitter are most all-time.

The A's also allowed Paul Konerko's milestone 400th home run for the White Sox when he did it April 25 against Grant Balfour in the Coliseum.
