Napoli: Hip is fine; other injuries nag

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli has to suppress a laugh when someone asks about the degenerative hip condition that two years ago cast his playing future into doubt. “My hips are the only thing that don’t hurt,’’ said Napoli, who hit his 17th home run in Boston’s 4-3, 10-inning loss to the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday. “It’s unbelievable. It’s actually gotten better. My last MRI about a month ago, it looked like it had gotten a little bit better, which is weird.

Mike Napoli hits upper deck with his longest homer of the year

Napoli. Smash. Mike Napoli has some power. The Red Sox first baseman showed it off in Toronto at the Rogers Centre when he blasted his longest shot of the year, a 451-foot shot that hit the upper deck and came back down. There is almost nothing I love in baseball more than Mike Napoli's beer-league softball swing resulting in a ball coming off the bat at 115 miles per hour and landing in the next zip code. Napoli's homer put the Red Sox up 9-4 in the 11th inning, and they would end up needing the scoring from this three-run blast as the Jays would come back to get three of their own in...

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.

Some deep thoughts on Mike Napoli’s long ball

TORONTO — So much for Mike Napoli shortening his swing with two strikes.Napoli did not miss an 0-2 fastball from Sergio Santos in the 11th inning last night, blasting just the 17th ball in history to the fifth and final deck at Rogers Centre to punctuate an 11-7 Red Sox victory against the Blue Jays.“My God,” Clay Buchholz said. “I don’t think he choked up on that one.”

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...

This season, that’s a tremendous mark.
