Boston, MA (Sports Network) - Mike Napoli got a second shot at redemption and took advantage with a solo home run to straightaway center field to give the Boston Red Sox a thrilling 8-7 victory over the rival New York Yankees in the rubber match of a three-game set at Fenway Park.

Napoli crushed a three-run homer earlier in the four-hour, 46-minute affair, but bounced into a double play with the bases loaded to end the eighth with the game tied.

It stayed 7-7 until Napoli sent Adam Warren's offering into the second row of seats in center field for Boston's ninth walk-off win.
