Red Sox 2, Twins 1

Red Sox 2, Twins 1

BOSTON — Brock Holt scored both Red Sox runs, and Jon Lester weathered a shaky start to pitch six-plus strong innings. Boston has won two straight games and four of its past six. After needing 33 pitches to get out of the first inning on a hot, muggy night at Fenway Park, Lester, who at 8-7 has a winning record for the first time this season, settled down and took a shutout into the sixth before leaving with one out in the seventh. The Twins have lost four straight games.
