The Red Sox fell behind 2-0 in the top of the first inning - a familiar scenario this season - but Steven Wright managed to settle down and Mike Napoli (pictured) slammed a pair of home runs as Boston topped the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 8-3 at Fenway Park on Saturday night.
Napoli, batting sixth in a revamped Boston lineup now has seven home runs on the season and four on this current home stand.
Manager John Farrell moved Dustin Pedroia into the leadoff spot with Shane Victorino second in an attempt to jump start what has been a lethargic Boston offense. Victorino left the game early with what is said to be a calf injury.

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).
