Napoli puts exclamation point on surge

TORONTO -- As only the 17th player to smash a home run into the Rogers Centre's upper deck, one would have thought Mike Napoli would have trouble containing his excitement in the aftermath of his epic long ball. "I was just trying to get a hit. ... It doesn't really matter if it goes far or into the first row for me," Napoli said. "I guess it's pretty cool." Well, perhaps Napoli could have been a little more fired up in the wake of his game-winning shot.

Rapid reaction: Angels 2, Red Sox 0

BOSTON—So, is it piling on when the bearded stars at Fenway Park are playing for the other side? Angels rookie pitcher Matt Shoemaker, the man with the shoe-black whiskers forming a hedgerow where his chin used to be, held the Red Sox hitless for 6 2/3 innings Thursday night before Will Middlebrooks stroked a double to left. That was Boston’s only hit in a 2-0 loss to the Angels before a crowd of 36,160 in Fenway Park. Shoemaker was pitching against a Red Sox lineup missing David Ortiz (day off) and Mike Napoli (back spasms) at the start of the game, then saw left-fielder Yoenis...
