The Red Sox managed only six hits - HATER ALERT: Stephen Drew had two of them - but managed to eke out a 1-0 win over the Minnesota Twins at Fenway Park behind the stellar pitching of Rubby De La Rosa and three relievers.

De La Rosa allowed just one hit in his seven innings on the mound; he walked three and struck out three. Andrew Miller and Burke Badenhop worked the eighth inning; Koji Uehara pitched a clean ninth inning for his 15th save of the year.

Boston scored the game's lone run in the bottom of the fifth inning. Daniel Nava got things started with a soft single to left field. Stephen Drew singled to left and was thrown out trying to advance to second but Nava had been advanced to third, setting the stage for A.J. Pierzynski's sacrifice fly that scored Nava with what proved to be the winning run.
