G96: Red Sox 8, Twins 7

Twins   - 020 100 220 - 7  9  1
Red Sox - 003 050 00x - 8 10  1
Hanley Ramirez and Travis Shaw each belted three-run homers as the Red Sox managed a split of the four-game series with Minnesota.

After Matt Barnes (who loaded the bases with none out in the eighth) and Junich Tazawa (who allowed two if those runners to score) helped Minnesota cut the Red Sox's lead down to one run, Brad Ziegler pitched a clean ninth, with two strikeouts, to close out the win.

Ramirez went deep in the third (his fifth home run in the last five games) and Shaw hit his shot in the fifth. ... Xander Bogaerts had three hits and scored twice. ... Dustin Pedroia singled, hit a solo homer, and scored twice.

"The 49-48 Yankees have been within two games of .500 after each of their last 32 games, tying the second-longest streak of that kind in team history. They had a 42-game streak in 2008 and a 32-game streak in 1914."
