The elation in the Minnesota dugout after Chris Parmelee broke a scoreless tie on a solo homer in the 10th inning didn’t last long. Seemingly on the verge of ending a four-game losing streak, the Twins instead lost their fifth in a row when Boston’s David Ortiz and Mike Napoli delivered back-to-back homers off Casey Fien and the Red Sox won it 2-1 Wednesday.
The Boston Red Sox are still looking for a position for Brock Holt. The versatile rookie has made the search difficult by playing well wherever the club has put him. Holt made his first professional start in center field and he appeared perfectly comfortable in his fifth position this season. He made a sensational diving catch to end the third inning and scored both Boston runs in the Red Sox’s 2-1 win over the Minnesota Twins 2-1 on Tuesday night.
Rubby De La Rosa matched his first career Fenway Park start with another seven impressive innings and A.J. Pierzynski had a sacrifice fly, lifting the Boston Red Sox to a 1-0 win over the Minnesota Twins Monday night. Mike Napoli helped cut down a runner trying to score with a heads up play in a Red Sox victory that came after a pair of one-run losses. Boston is 9-15 in one-run games.
Aaron Hicks delivered the game-winning single in the bottom of the 10th and Phil Hughes struck out eight in six innings to help the Minnesota Twins beat the Boston Red Sox 4-3 in the series finale on Thursday.
Josh Willingham finally hit his first home run of the spring in Minnesota’s exhibition finale, and the Twins beat the Boston Red Sox 7-4 on Saturday. The game was called because of rain with two outs in the top of the ninth inning. Mike Napoli went 2 for 2 with a home run and three RBIs for the Red Sox. Jake Peavy, making his third Grapefruit League start, gave up one run and three hits in five innings. He walked one and struck out three.
Mike Napoli hit a solo homer to help the Boston Red Sox defeat the Minnesota Twins 4-0 on Friday. The Red Sox gave Grady Sizemore the day off after telling the oft-injured three-time All-Star that he will be their starting center field on opening day. He has not played in the big leagues since 2011.
Phil Hughes couldn’t overcome some sloppy defense to allow two unearned runs in the third inning of the Minnesota Twins’ 4-3 loss Thursday to the Boston Red Sox.
Yes, we’re all aware spring training records, stats and accomplishments don’t count toward the regular season. But that doesn’t mean we should just dismiss a legitimately amazing accomplishment with a mere “huh” just because it happened in early March.
Isn’t it better when the teams hate each other? Here are the top 5 team rivalries in sports.
Chris Parmelee’s three-run homer off left-handed reliever Jose Mijares broke open a close game in the sixth inning on Saturday, and the Minnesota Twins went on to beat the Boston Red Sox 6-2. Parmelee hit just .172 against lefties last year. He opened the season as the Twins’ everyday right fielder but gradually lost playing time until being sent back to Triple-A at the All-Star break. The former first-round draft pick is out of minor league options.
Infielder Xander Bogaerts has a World Series ring. Now he’ll crack the Red Sox starting lineup.
Mike Pelfrey pitched two scoreless innings in his spring debut after a poor season, and the Minnesota Twins beat the Boston Red Sox 8-2 Friday. Pelfrey allowed one hit. The Twins starter went 5-13 with a 5.19 ERA last year. Mike Napoli got two hits for Boston. David Ortiz and Dustin Pedroia each went 0 for 2.
