FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — Minnesota Twins closer Joe Nathan threw a scoreless inning in his first game since an elbow injury wiped out his 2010 season, a 5-0 exhibition win Tuesday by the Boston Red Sox.

Nathan got two flyouts and a groundout in the fourth, walking Jarrod Saltalamacchia. Nathan said after leaving the game that he felt ahead of where he has been at this point in previous spring trainings. The four-time All-Star is coming off ligament replacement surgery.

Red Sox starter Jon Lester threw two scoreless innings, giving up one hit and one walk with one strikeout, and the Twins were held to just four hits. Jed Lowrie had an RBI single for Boston, and Jonathan Papelbon pitched a scoreless inning in relief.
