Here is my best explanation:

'one in the bay of naples' is the definition.
The definition suggests a singular noun which matches the answer.

'better run island' is the wordplay.
'better' becomes 'cap' (I've seen this before).
'run' becomes 'r' (cricket abbreviation).
'island' becomes 'i'.
'cap'+'r'+'i'='CAPRI'
