Red Soxs Drop Second Straight Loss To Twins

By DJ Harding –

The Red Soxs coming in have a record of 14-11-4 versus Major League opponents during Spring Training. 

Boston started the season with an unbeaten streak of 14 games but have now gone 5-11-1 since then in their last 17 games.

The Red Soxs are coming off a loss to the Tampa Bay Rays yesterday, which currently puts them in fifth place in the Grapefruit League going into today’s matchup versus the Minnesota Twins.

The Twins would break the tie of zero in the top of the fourth when Ryan Jeffers hit a two run home-run. Rafael Devers would hit a home-run of his own to bring the Red Soxs within one run.

Boston would score again in the bottom of the fifth and tie the game at two runs a piece. Boston wouldn’t hold that tie for long though as that would be all the scoring from Boston on the day.

In the very next inning Willi Castro would hit a two run homer which was the second for the Twins which gave them a 4-2 lead.

The Twins in the top of the seventh would have their third two run home run on the day from Hernan Perez which put the Twins up 6-2.

Minnesota would score for the third straight inning in the top of the eighth which would bring the final score to 7-2 with the Twins gaining the win.

The Twins improve to 12-15 and will take on the Pittsburgh Pirates tomorrow as the Boston Red Soxs fall to 14-12 and give them a record of  5-12-1 in their last 18 games.

Boston will face the Atlanta Braves tomorrow in hopes to end their two game losing streak.
