Twins 6, Red Sox 1

The Minnesota Twins aren't taking any chances with Scott Diamond's surgically repaired left elbow. On Tuesday night, he didn't give the Boston Red Sox many. Diamond allowed three hits in seven shutout innings, Ryan Doumit hit his first homer of the season and the Twins beat the Red Sox 6-1. Diamond said he still felt strong when he left the game but understands the...

Q&A: Glen Perkins, A Twin, His FIP, and Math

Glen Perkins knows his FIP. He also knows his HR/9, Z-Swing% and O-Swing%. More importantly, he understands what they mean. As the Minnesota Twins left-hander says, “I like baseball and I like math.” Perkins is more than a stat geek. The 30-year-old converted starter is one of the better closers in the American League [despite his skepticism of modern-day closer usage]. Six weeks...

Stephen Drew Looks to Stay Hot Against Scott Diamond, Twins at Fenway Park

Stephen Drew took a lot of flak for a slow start to the season after he was activated shortly after the season began. However, as Drew starts to get more at-bats, he’s starting to find his swing some. He did that in a big way Monday night against Minnesota where he had four hits, including a game-tying home run in the seventh inning and then a walk-off RBI double in the 11th inning...

Twins Tuesday: Carroll tries hand as leadoff man

For the first time in more than three years, the Minnesota Twins had their shortstop batting leadoff. Veteran infielder Jamey Carroll got the start Tuesday at shortstop, his first game there this year. He was also penciled into the lineup as the Twins' leadoff batter. Second baseman Brian Dozier had been handling leadoff duties since mid-April but was moved down to ninth in...

Twins' offense torments Boston pitching

The scoreboard Wednesday at Fenway Park resembled a football score, but it was indeed the score from a baseball game. That was thanks in large part to the first two innings the Minnesota Twins put together in Wednesday's 15-8 win over Boston. In the first two innings combined, the Twins scored a total of 11 runs on nine hits. That included four doubles and two home runs a two...

Recap: Diamond shuts down Sox in 6-1 loss

In a pretty boring 6-1 game in which the Sox got just four its and made three errors, you might expect me to be negative in the post, but I'm going to focus on the positive. With just-decent starts out of staff leaders Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz, uncertainty out of the rest of the rotation, and injuries depleting an otherwise good bullpen, the Red Sox really needed a good...

Series Preview: Minnesota Twins (13-14) vs. Boston Red Sox (20-11)

  Memories of the 2012 version of the Red Sox came flooding back over the weekend, as the local nine were swept in a three-game set against the Rangers in Arlington. Luckily for the Sox, a four-game series against a weak Minnesota Twins team awaits them at Fenway to kick off the homestand. The Twins (13-14), who are coming off a series in Cleveland in which they lost two out of...

Twins' Gibson putting Tommy John surgery in the past

Kyle Gibson picked a good time for a complete game shutout. The Minnesota Twins' pitching prospect went the distance Wednesday for Triple-A Rochester in a 3-0 win over Toledo. Just one day earlier, the Red Wings used nine pitchers in a marathon 16-inning 3-2 win, so Gibson helped preserve Rochester's bullpen. Gibson's best game of the year also followed up his worst...

Red Sox-Twins Live: Ryan Dempster Searches for Win No. 3 As Sox Welcome Joe Mauer, Minnesota

8 a.m. ET: It took nearly five hours on Monday night, but the Red Sox finally put away the Twins in 11 innings, snapping a three-game losing skid on Stephen Drew’s walk-off double off the Green Monster. The two teams are back at it again Tuesday, when Ryan Dempster takes the hill opposite Minnesota lefty Scott Diamond. After a bit of a shaky start to the season, Dempster has settled...

Red Sox-Twins Live: Sox Try to Shake Off Disappointing News, Rough Stretch to Salvage Split With Twins

5:25 p.m.:  There were some brief downpours over at Fenway Park. Now, it appears to just be drizzling a bit. Either way, it’s overcast and the tarp is on the field.
