G94: Twins 2, Red Sox 1

Twins   - 010 001 000 - 2 10  1
Red Sox - 100 000 000 - 1  4  1
The Red Sox had the bases loaded with no one out in the bottom of the ninth inning. They trailed by only one run and had David Ortiz at the plate, facing Brandon Kintzler.

However, there were no walkoff heroics from Big Papi tonight. He grounded into a 4-2-3 double play, which cut down the runner coming in from third. With men at second and third, Hanley Ramirez lined out to right to end the game.

For the second game in a row, Mookie Betts led off the first inning with a home run (though he waited until the second pitch to hit this one). It was his 20th dong of the season. ... Betts left the game in the fifth inning with a sore right knee.

Eduardo Rodriguez: 5.1-6-2-1-8, 95.

Scott Lauber, ESPN:
"Mookie Betts felt what manager John Farrell described as "soreness" in his knee to the point where he "felt like he couldn't run as normal." Farrell called it "precautionary" to take Betts out of the game. Red Sox hoping it's not a lingering issue."
