Napoli hit a solo shot in the 7th inning for the Red Sox 1-0 win. On Thursday, he went deep in the 2nd inning to stake the Sox to a 1-run lead, which ended up being that margin. Over the week, he went 6-16, 2 2B, 2 HR, 2 RBI. He was 6-12 for the 3 games in Detroit, with an O-fer the series finale in which the offense had enough without him. But his is a worthy recipient of the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!

near no-hitter on September 24 in his final regular season start, then has been occasionally tapped by manager Mike Matheny throughout these playoffs. This week, he delivered two key wins for the Red Birds as they surge toward their second World Series in three years. Wacha pitched brilliantly in delivering a must-have Game 4 NLDS victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates (in a Cardinals elimination game), then followed it up with a dominant NLCS Game 2 performance against the Los Angeles Dodgers. For the week (and postseason), Wacha sits at 2-0, 14 IP, 6H, 1 ER, and 17K. Amazing numbers and worth of the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
