The Twins have taken three out of four here at the Metrodome by virtue of a 7-3 win over the Red Sox tonight. The Sox scored three in the first inning against Livan Hernandez and never scored again against Hernandez, who went the first six innings to improve to 6-1, and the Twins’ bullpen.
The Red Sox now have lost four out of their last six games and head to Baltimore, where Josh Beckett will oppose Jeremy Guthrie tomorrow night.
Last night’s highlight for the Red Sox was Manny Ramirez’ 498th home run, his second homer in the last 20 games. He flied to center to end the game.
