Red Sox - 302 230 010 - 11 18 0 Twins - 100 010 000 - 2 6 0It was a near perfect night in Minneapolis, as the Red Sox won their second straight game against the Twins.
Mile Aviles went 4-for-5, with two doubles and a home run, and three runs scored. David Ortiz singled and homered (a moon shot) and drove in three runs; Flo is batting .444. Adrian Gonzalez had three hits and two RBI, and scored twice. Ryan Sweeney, Marlon Byrd, and Kevin Youkilis each had two hits.
Beckett (6-5-2-3-5, 100) settled down after a shaky 37-pitch first inning in which he walked three consecutive batters, the last one forcing in a run. Beckett escaped a 2nd/3rd, one-out jam in the third - when the score was only 5-1 - (thanks to a diving catch by Byrd), and finished his night by striking out the side in the sixth. Scott Atchison pitched two perfect innings of relief, and Matt Albers finished up.
