Mike Napoli's Game 1 three-run double
Playing in their first World Series since 2007, the Red Sox showed early on why they were regarded as the best offense in the majors. In the first inning of Game 1, after a controversial call at second base was reversed and the Sox had the bases loaded with one out, Mike Napoli smashed a 2-and-0 pitch to deep left field and the ball carried all the way to the wall for a double.
Jacoby Ellsbury and Dustin Pedroia scored easily, but it was David Ortiz sprinting all the way around from first base that gave the Sox a 3-0 lead. The Red Sox would go on to win, 8-1, and make a strong statement that this team was no fluke.
