Wade, Nap And Bogie Pace Red Sox To 6-1 Win

(Associated Press)
Good thing Mike Napoli's back is broad—because he's carrying the Red Sox offense right now. The burly first-sacker knocked in four runs today—including another 2-run HR as the Red Sox took the series from the Angles, 6-1. Quick-working Wade Miley was highly efficient—retiring the first 14 Angels he faced. He ended up going eight solid innings, giving up just one run on four hits. Red-hot Xander Bogaerts had his second career 4-hit game—and is now hitting .290. This is the type of team we were told we had for 2015. Could it finally be materializing two months into the six-month campaign? Your Carmine Hose—despite being two games under .500—are just 2.5 games out of first place. Boston heads to Minnesota to—amazingly—face the Twins for the first time in the regular season. This after seemingly meeting the Twinkies every other day in Spring Training. Go figure.
