The Twins jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the bottom of the 3rd inning with 2 of those runs coming on another Chris Parmelee's home run, this time off Boston starter Clay Buchholz.
Buchholz (pictured) allowed 10 hits and 3 walks while striking out 6 over 6 innings in the no-decision. All in all it was a better performance than his previous outing against Texas last Friday (6 runs on 10 hits in 4.1 innings against Texas) but he struggled throughout the afternoon against the Twins.
Former Yankee Phil Hughes started for Minnesota, limiting the Red Sox to just 1 run on 5 hits over his 6 innings of work. He struck out 8 and didn't walk a batter.
Boston scored on an RBI single by Carp in the top of the 4th inning for their first run of the game. Ortiz's single in the top of the 9th inning extended his hitting streak to 8 games.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
