Napoli hits 2 HRs, Red Sox bash Yanks 13-9
       NEW YORK (AP) _ Mike Napoli hit two home runs, Jonny Gomes and prized rookie Xander Bogaerts also connected, and the Boston Red Sox kept up their dizzying scoring spree at Yankee Stadium, bashing New York 13-9 Saturday for their fifth straight win.
        The AL East leaders became the first visiting team in more than a century to score at least nine runs on three straight days against the Yankees. In fact, the last time it happened, they weren't called the Yankees _ Boston did it in 1912 to the Highlanders at Hilltop Park.
        Down 12-3, the Yankees rallied with four runs in the sixth inning and chased John Lackey (9-12). Mark Reynolds added a two-run double in the eighth off Red Sox reliever Drake Britton that made it 12-9.
        David Ortiz and Dustin Pedroia each contributed to Boston's five doubles.
