4. Mike Napoli snaps slump with clutch two-run homer in ninth inning against Blue Jays. (Aug. 14)
Mike Napoli went through some major struggles this season, prompting John Farrell to drop him down in the order. But Napoli quickly showed that it was only a matter of time before he started raking again. He launched a game-tying, two-run homer with two outs in the ninth inning against the Blue Jays on Aug. 14. And while the Red Sox eventually lost in 10 innings, it was another instance of Boston refusing to quit.
