BOSTON — Get this man a calling card. He keeps dialing long distance.
Mike Napoli went yard again Sunday in the Red Sox’s series finale against the Los Angeles Angels. The slugger’s second-inning home run off Hector Santiago wasn’t your average blast, though. At 450 feet, it was the longest homer at Fenway Park this season, according to ESPN Stats & Info.
Napoli, who drilled two home runs in Saturday’s 8-3 win, has four homers over his last three games. He hit five homers during Boston’s six-game homestand, giving him eight for the season.
The longest home run at Fenway Park this season before Napoli’s two-run shot off Santiago on Sunday? That would be Napoli’s second home run of Saturday’s game.
Yeah, it’s been a big week for No. 12.
