Arcia HR, Lackey error boost Twins over Sox

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (AP) - Oswaldo Arcia hit a two-run homer and the Minnesota Twins capitalized on a costly throwing error by Boston starter John Lackey to beat the struggling Red Sox 5-3 Thursday night.
 
Lackey's wild throw to second base on a potential inning-ending double play gave the Twins another chance in the sixth and they responded with four unearned runs, including two on Arcia's homer, to take a 5-2 lead.
 
Minnesota wrapped up the four-game series with its third consecutive win while the Red Sox lost for the sixth time in seven games, falling out of first place for the first time this season.
 
Kevin Correia (4-2) pitched 5 1-3 innings, his second shortest outing in seven starts this season. But relievers Brian Duensing, Jared Burton and Glen Perkins held the Red Sox scoreless the rest of the way. Perkins pitched the ninth for his eighth save in eight chances.
