Red Sox 8, Twins 1
MINNEAPOLIS — Xander Bogaerts matched a career high with four hits, including a three-run home run, and Steven Wright pitched into the eighth inning to lead the Red Sox. Bogaerts opened the scoring with his homer in the fifth inning off Twins starter Tyler Duffey. Bogaerts' seventh homer of the season landed in the bullpen in left-centerfield for a 3-0 lead. The home run was one of 16 hits by the Red Sox. Minnesota didn't have much of an answer for Wright and his knuckleball.
