Boston, MA (Sports Network) - Mike Napoli got a second shot at redemption and
took advantage with a solo home run to straightaway center field to give the
Boston Red Sox a thrilling 8-7 victory over the rival New York Yankees in the
rubber match of a three-game set at Fenway Park.
Napoli crushed a three-run homer earlier in the four-hour, 46-minute affair,
but bounced into a double play with the bases loaded to end the eighth with
the game tied.
It stayed 7-7 until Napoli sent Adam Warren's offering into the second row of
seats in center field for Boston's ninth walk-off win.
