Napoli homered, his 21st, in a 1-for-4 game with a walk, two runs scored and two RBI in Tuesday's win over the Royals. Napoli now has four home runs over his past eight games and five home runs already in July. His batting average (currently just .249) will be limited by his strikeout-happy ways -- Monday night's game took him to 120 on the season already -- but Napoli is having one of his best power seasons in what has been a career built on slugging ability.
