The Red Sox rallied in the ninth, but it was too little too late as the Texas Rangers managed to hold on for a 6-3 win over the Red Sox, led by another Mike Napoli home run.
The Rangers catcher continues to eat Red Sox pitching up, blasting in five RBIs while growing his legend among Red Sox fans as one of those guys they hate seeing come up to bat.
NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is glad to see Kevin Youkilis get on the board with home run No. 1 of the season, but it’s hard to ignore the kind of Chuck Norris-level performance being put up by Napoli, Texas Ranger. So, he’s taking home player of the game honors.
