MLB: Boston defeats Minnesota 2-1 in 10 innings
Boston, MA (WDAY TV) - The Twins wrapped up their marathon nine game road trip Wednesday in Boston, they couldn't have pitched any better in the first two games at Fenway, allowing just three runs problem was Ron Gardenhire's team had managed to score just one run.
He had to feel good that Kyle Gibson was on the mound.
Gibson had pitched seven scoreless innings in his last two starts; he was terrific again today, another seven innings without allowing a run, he only allowed one hit, lowered his ERA to 3.25 in the process.
This was a scoreless game into the 10th inning, Chris Parmelee, had one of the games of his life, this a home run to right; gives the Twins a 1-0 lead!
Glen Perkins is battling a bad back, so Casey Fien tried to close it out. David Ortiz had other ideas, this a typical Ortiz homer around the Pesky pole; that tied it at 1.
Next hitter is Mike Napoli, and he sends everyone home happy; bombed to center field.
Red Sox win it 2-1 in 10; Twins have lost a season high five in a row.
