FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) -- Mike Pelfrey struck out five in three impressive innings to help the Minnesota Twins beat the Boston Red Sox 2-0 on Friday night. It was Pelfrey's second scoreless outing in a row following a shaky spring debut with his new team. The big right-hander, dumped by the Mets in the offseason, is coming off Tommy John surgery last May and competing for a spot in Minnesota's rotation. Red Sox starter Ryan Dempster went 3 2-3 innings, allowing two runs and five hits with two strikeouts. Minnesota got to Dempster with two outs in the third. Aaron Hicks doubled and scored on Brian Dozier's single. Ryan Doumit's run-scoring single made it 2-0. Brian Duensing, Josh Roenicke, Michael Tonkin and Tyler Robertson combined to pitch six scoreless innings for the Twins, giving up three hits with two walks and five strikeouts.
