Boston Red Sox

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.
