Napoli's 11th innings homer lifts Red Sox to thrilling, 8-7 win over Yankees

Despite scoring twice in the first thanks to two Boston throwing errors, and rallying from a 7-3 deficit thanks to two-run sixth and seventh innings, the Yankees lost a heartbreaker in last night's rubber game to the Red Sox, 8-7. Yankees starter CC Sabathia again struggled in this one, giving up 7 earned runs in 5 innings of work while escaping with a no-decision. 

Overall, the Bombers bullpen was really good last night, with David Robertson escaping a bases loaded jam in the eighth and Shawn Kelley dominating in the ninth and tenth innings. But in the eleventh, as mentioned in this post's title, Adam Warren surrendered a walk-off solo home run to Mike Napoli, ending the night. This one was really tough, but it's just one game. Time to move on.
