Mike Napoli continued his hot homestand with another home run as the Red Sox topped the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 6-1 on Sunday afternoon at Fenway Park.
Napoli's two-run blast in the bottom of the second inning, his third straight game with a long ball, put Boston out front (you do remember when the Red Sox used to routinely get early leads, right?) 2-0. Dustin Pedroia's sacrifice fly in the fifth made it 3-0 Boston.
Meanwhile, the rejuvenation of Wade Miley continues. Following a shaky April (8.62 ERA over 5 first-month starts) Miley threw eight innings of one-run ball, the first time he pitched into the eighth inning for the Sox. He allowed just one Angels run on four hits and one walk. He retired the first fourteen batters he faced.

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).
