Boston, MA (Sports Network) - Jamey Carroll drove in the winning run in the 10th inning as the Minnesota Twins took a 6-5 victory over the Boston Red Sox in the second of four from Fenway Park.
With Vicente Padilla (4-1) on the mound, Darin Mastroianni led off with a double that dropped between right and center. Brian Dozier attempted a bunt, but popped it into foul territory down the third base side and Will Middlebrooks made a nice diving grab, but Carroll then dropped a single into center for the go-ahead run.
Jared Burton then worked a 1-2-3 bottom of the 10th for his fourth save of the season.
Carroll made a winner out of Jeff Gray (6-1), who got the final out of the eighth to escape a bases-loaded game then worked a scoreless ninth.
Justin Morneau went 4-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored while Carroll also had four hits for the Twins, who have taken the first two of this set and have won six of eight overall.
Carl Crawford went 3-for-5 with a three-run home run and two runs scored and Adrian Gonzalez also drove in a run and scored once for the Red Sox, who have dropped three straight.
