Gomes lifts Red Sox over Twins

Posted: Updated:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Jonny Gomes hit a sacrifice fly in the 10th inning to lift the Boston Red Sox to another comeback victory, 3-2 over the Minnesota Twins on Friday night.

The Red Sox have won three straight after losing 10 of their previous 14 games, while the Twins have lost three in a row after winning six of nine.
 
Twins reliever Josh Roenicke (1-1) gave up a single and a walk to open the 10th. After a sacrifice bunt, Stephen Drew was intentionally walked to load the bases. Then Gomes sent a drive to center field, where Aaron Hicks caught the ball but double-clutched on his throw and didn't have a chance to get the speedy Dustin Pedroia.
 
Alex Wilson (1-0) picked up the victory by getting the last out of the ninth and Koji Uehara threw a perfect 10th for his first save.
