Napoli?s home run is only the 17th ever hit into the fifth deck at Rogers Centre, according to the Blue Jays. It?s the seventh such homer hit by an opposing player.

The Red Sox scored seven runs in the 11th inning Tuesday en route to their second straight extra-inning win. It was an eventful contest for Napoli, as the slugger also was plunked in the head by an R.A. Dickey knuckleball earlier in the contest.
