Red Sox 1, Twins 0
BOSTON — Rubby De La Rosa matched his first career Fenway Park start with another seven impressive innings, and A.J. Pierzynski had a sacrifice fly for the Red Sox. First baseman Mike Napoli helped cut down a runner trying to score with a heads-up play in a Boston victory that came after two one-run losses. De La Rosa gave up a single in the third inning as he combined with three relievers on a three-hitter. In his other Fenway start, on May 31, he also pitched seven shutout innings, holding the Rays to four hits. He had given up four runs over 52/3 innings in each of his past two starts, both on the road.
