A pair of Dustin Pedroia home runs went for naught as the Red Sox fell to the Minnesota Twins 6-4 on Wednesday afternoon at Target Field.

Rick Porcello took the loss for Boston allowing six runs on sevens hits (including two home runs) and two walks while striking out two.

Pedroia (pictured) gave the Red Sox a brief 2-0 lead with a home run in the top of the third inning off Minnesota starter Phil Hughes that drove in Brock Holt.

Torii Hunter drove in a pair with an RBI single in the bottom of the inning followed by a Joe Mauer RBI single to give the Twins a lead they wouldn't relinquish.

Pedroia and Holt each had two hits for the Red Sox in the loss.
