July 21: Red Sox 8, Yankees 7 (F/11)
Recap: Mike Napoli was on both sides of the Red Sox spectrum in this game. He batted six times, including three strikeouts and grounding into a double play with the bases loaded in the bottom of the eighth inning. But the two at-bats he didn’t record an out were the ones that mattered: a massive three-run home run in the third inning to give the Sox a lead after falling behind early, and another homer to straightaway center field in the bottom of the 11th with two outs to send the Sox to victory over the Yankees after Boston let New York back into the game despite going up 7-3 on the Yankees after five innings.
They said it: "I had a chance to win it in the eighth – to put a run across with a sac fly… That's what is so great about this game, you always get another chance. You've just got to keep going. You can't do anything about it." – Mike Napoli
