According to Ian Browne of MLB.com, David Ortiz has been issued an RBI for Wednesday, August 3.

Initially given an RBI for the play, Ortiz caused some controversy the following day when he stormed into Terry Francona's press conference after learning the official scorer took it away from him.

The Red Sox appealed the decision and won, crediting Ortiz with the RBI that had originally entered the books six days earlier. He now has 75 on the season.
