Ouch. And again we say: Ouch. Brewers pitcher Kyle Lohse incurred a nasty pinky injury on his left hand in Monday night’s game, and he did it the last way a pitcher wants to get hurt: running the bases.

Mike Napoli Continues to Exhibit Masterful Stroke As Red Sox Outslug A’s in Series Opener

Red Sox manager John Farrell knew that Mike Napoli‘s uppercut, right-handed swing would fit in perfectly in Fenway Park’s unique dimensions when he brought in the former Texas Ranger over the winter. But it’s doubtful that even Farrell could have predicted just how productive his new first baseman has been. After a five-RBI effort Monday night, Napoli has now driven in a major...
