The Sox have two hits.
Top of the 3rd: Twins 0, Red Sox 0: Dempster worked around a leadoff single before the Sox went in order.
Top of the 2nd: Twins 0, Red Sox 0: Dempster had a perfect inning. The Sox loaded the bases with one out in the bottom of the inning but nava struck out and Middlebrooks flied out to the wall in right.
