Twins Vs. Red Sox Final Score: Boston Hands Minnesota Their Fourth Straight Loss, 11-2

The Minnesota Twins' starting pitching woes continued on Tuesday night with Nick Blackburn only lasting three innings in a 11-2 beating to the Boston Red Sox. The loss is the Twins' fourth straight, as they fall to 5-13 on the young season.

Blackburn gave up five earned runs on eight hits in three innings, inflating his ERA to 7.53 on the year. Matt Maloney relieved him and put up an identical line, only in 1.2 innings, and just like that the night was all but over for the Twins.

Denard Span and Josh Willingham each had two hits for the Twins, who scored once in the first and another in the fifth.

Josh Beckett got the win for the Red Sox, who improved to 6-10.

The third and final game of this series will be Wednesday night with Liam Hendricks taking the mound for the Twins.
