Despite Dozier's blast, Twins fall to Boston in 11

Posted: Updated:

Stephen Drew doubled in the winning run with two outs in the 11th inning, and the Boston Red Sox rallied past the Minnesota Twins 6-5 on Monday night to stop season-high, three-game losing streak.

Drew also homered for the Red Sox. Dustin Pedroia hit a solo shot in the eighth for a 5-4 lead, but Joel Hanrahan gave up Brian Dozier's homer in the ninth. Clayton Mortensen (1-2) earned the win with 2 1-3 innings of scoreless relief.

 Jared Burton (0-1) retired his first two batters in the 11th, then gave up a swinging bunt single to Jarrod Saltalamacchia when the pitcher's throw pulled first baseman Justin Morneau off the bag.

 Will Middlebrooks singled, and Drew hit a line drive to the base of the Green Monster in left-center. Vance Worley gave up nine hits and three runs in 5 innings of work for the Twins.
