Napoli also scored the game tying run in the 4th inning when the Royals committed an error on a ball hit by Shane Victorino who returned to the lineup after rehabing a hamstring injury.
Starting pitcher Rubby De La Rosa earned his 3rd win after allowing just 5 hits over 7 innings of work. Boston will go for the series sweep today when Jon Lester takes the mound against Yordano Ventura.
