Napoli homers twice in Red Sox win over Angels

Losing two straight and four of five, the Red Sox offense, which came in averaging 2.45 runs per game in May, and team in general needed a spark — someone to insert some life into the group.

Mike Napoli to the rescue.

The first baseman hit two monster home runs, as the Red Sox beat the Angels 8-3 Saturday night at Fenway Park.

His second home run came in the sixth inning with two outs and Hanley Ramirez on first base as he took a C.J. Wilson offering and crushed it over everything in left, snapping a 2-2 tie at the time.

Napoli owns the Angels as he entered the game with the best all-time slugging percentage (.679) and OPS (1.120) against them. He has reached base in 14 straight games against them.

The Red Sox added to their lead in the seventh inning when Xander...

Victorino leaves game with left calf tightness

Shane Victorino just can’t seem to stay 100 percent healthy.

After going back awkwardly on a fly ball in the top of the third inning of Saturday’s game against the Angels, the rightfielder was removed from the game prior to his at-bat the next half inning. The team announced it as left calf tightness.

He had missed the previous two games with “general soreness” centered around the left calf.

Since the start of the 2014 season, Victorino has played in just 50 games.

Cherington believes in current players

With the Red Sox looking to create a spark and rejuvenate the lineup and team, don’t expect a trade to be one of those ways — at least yet.

The Red Sox are 19-23 to open the year and have dropped four of their last five games. They are also 8-12 at home and averaging only 2.45 runs per game in May, with 13 of the 20 games scoring two runs or fewer.

Manager John Farrell shook up the lineup Saturday, moving Dustin Pedroia into the leadoff spot and flip-flopped David Ortiz and Hanley Ramirez, but other than lineup changes, don’t expect anything...

Pats fans stage 'Free Tom Brady' rally Sunday

Patriots fans will be taking time out of their Memorial Day weekend to show their support for their embattled superstar quarterback.

According to a Facebook fan page, fans will be holding a rally in support of Tom Brady at Gillette Stadium on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event, according to a post on the page, describes the event as a “peaceful rally to protest the unjust football arrest of half God half man Tom Brady.”

The rally takes place at Patriot Place Parking Lot 4, in the general area of the Patriots Pro Shop and Hall at Patriot Place, which houses the team’s hall of fame.

Brady has been suspended for...

Sox notes: Sandoval available, Ross optioned

The Red Sox will face another left-handed pitcher Saturday in the Angels’ C.J. Wilson. For the season as a team, the Red Sox are batting .197 against lefties, with some individual players even worse as Pablo Sandoval is just 2-for-41 (.049).

Because of that, Sandoval is out of the lineup, as manager John Farrell said he is over the knee issue after missing the last three games following being hit by a pitch Tuesday night.

“He’s available inside of tonight,” Farrell said. “If there was a right-handed starter on the mound, he would be in the lineup, but with Wilson going it was a chance to get him another day down.”

There were more changes with...
