Boston Red Sox' Mike Napoli will start at first base in Game 3 of ALCS

Last night’s game between the Detroit Tigers and Boston Red Sox looked as if it was game seven of the series and the Sox won the pennant.

After David Ortiz connected on a ball that he drove to right center field and it cleared the fence, the entire stadium was on it’s feet. I seen video of live footage of Ortiz delivering that game tying grand slam and the entire crowd was jumping up and down in front of their seats, almost at the same time.

After Saltalamacchia’s walk off single the Red Sox were able to tie the series at one game a piece. Game three of the series kicks off tomorrow in Detroit. The Red Sox will find themselves playing three games in Detroit, hoping they can close out the series away instead of having to wait until they get home.

Soon to be free agent veteran catcher/first baseman Mike Napoli will actually play first base for the Sox in Game three. Napoli has had an amazing season after finding out he had a hip problem.
