Home runs by Mike Napoli and David Ortiz (pictured) backed seven strong innings by Wade Miley as the Red Sox beat the Texas Rangers 4-3 on Tuesday night at Fenway Park.
Boston scored first in their half of the opening frame on an RBI single by Ortiz that drove in Dustin Pedroia. Napoli hit a solo home run to left in the bottom of the fourth and Ortiz followed with his sixth home run of the year in the fifth.
Miley held the Rangers to a pair of runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out seven. His record improved to 3-4 and his ERA dropped to 5.10.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball and radio (WDHA).
