The Boston Red Sox were able to pick up their fifth straight win on the road Sunday against the Minnesota Twins, but it took a little while to do it. The Red Sox came back out and captured the win after a three-hour rain delay.

Starting pitcher John Lackey pitched six innings in the 5-1 victory, but he knew after the first half hour of the delay that he wouldn’t be going back into the game. Lackey said the team spent the time watching classic baseball movie "The Sandlot" in the clubhouse.
