Red Sox get win on Napoli walkoff homer


The Eagle-Tribune

---- — BOSTON (AP) — Mike Napoli homered with two outs in the 11th inning — his second of the game — and the Boston Red Sox beat the New York Yankees 8-7 last night.

The Red Sox scored seven runs after falling behind 3-0, thanks in part to Napoli’s three-run homer in the third. But they coughed up the lead when New York scored two in the sixth and two in the seventh to tie it 7-all.

It stayed that way until Napoli hit a 3-2 pitch from Adam Warren (1-1) into the center field bleachers.

Pedro Beato (1-0) pitched the 11th for the win, giving up a single to Eduardo Nunez before he was erased trying to steal second; replays showed he was barely safe.

Nunez, Brett Gardner and Robinson Cano had three hits apiece for the Yankees.
