Tuesday: Red Sox 7, Twins 4

Boston rallied to beat the Twins this afternoon. Box.
Twins 100 003 000 - 4 12 1
Red Sox 000 012 04x - 7 7 1
Although Matt Clement allowed a home run to Luis Rivas on the third pitch of the game, he finished strong, allowing three hits and one run in three innings. Matt Mantei made his debut, allowing one hit in one inning. Manny Ramirez and David Ortiz both hit home runs.

Francona's lineup today had Trot Nixon batting 2nd, Manny 3rd, Ortiz 4th and Edgar Renteria 5th. It may not really matter where Manny and Ortiz bat, but Tito did say this: "My instincts tell me Manny is going to hit third when this is all said and done."
