Napoli, Pujols Swing Deep Into World Series Lore

ST. LOUIS (AP)  It happens every fall. Someone steps up – maybe a monster talent like Albert Pujols, perhaps a good player like Mike Napoli given a chance when the stars align. Might even be a fringe guy.

A huge swing or two or three, a masterful job on the mound, a sparkling play in the field can do more than win a game. They can create a legacy that lasts forever  “Mr. October.”

Pujols made the first big dent in this World Series, then it was Napoli’s turn.

Bases loaded, eighth inning, tie game. A ballpark full of fans on their feet, “Nap-Oh-Lee” flashing on the scoreboard, crowd chanting his name. And did he deliver. A booming double that put his Texas Rangers one win from their first championship, a gigantic hit that moved him closer to possibly becoming the Series MVP.
