Here are today's lineups:
RED SOX (21-11)
Pitching: RHP Ryan Dempster (2-2, 3.00)
Pitching: LHP Scott Diamond (2-2, 3.97)
Game time: 7:10 p.m.
TV/radio: NESN / WEEI
Stat of the Day: The Twins have an AL-best 2.56 bullpen ERA, compared with a 4.87 ERA from starters (10th in AL). That 2.31 difference is the largest of any AL team.
Notes: Monday's 6-5 win over the Twins was the Red Sox' third walkoff win of the season. It just so happens that it snapped the team's season-long three-game losing streak … Monday's win also made sure the Red Sox kept the best record in baseball at 21-11 … The Sox are on a six-game home winning streak, their longest since a nine-game stretch in 2011 … Dempster has allowed two or fewer runs in four of his last five starts. He was 2-0 with a 1.29 ERA against the Twins last year for the Cubs … This will be Scott Diamond's first appearance against the Sox.
Song of the day: "Carry On" by Fun.
