As the Red Sox dressed after Sunday’s game and prepared for their seven-day road trip, catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia reached into his bag for a thin cotton tie with a camouflage print. It was a much bolder fashion statement than anything his teammates wore.

“I can’t say,” Saltalamacchia said. “It’s a secret. I don’t want anyone else to get it.”
The key to Saltalamacchia’s success Sunday afternoon — two home runs and four RBIs in a 10-5 win over the Angels — was a secret manager John Farrell didn’t mind revealing.
Saltalamacchia and hitting coach Greg Colbrunn have been focusing on hitting to the middle of the field, rather than the switch-hitter pulling the ball. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
