Twins 9, Red Sox 8: Minnesota' Late Rally Dooms Red Sox

Fort Myers, FL (Sports Network) - Chase Lambin's three-run double capped a six-run rally in the ninth inning, sending Minnesota to a 9-8 spring training win over the Boston Red Sox.

Dustin Martin and Mark Dolenc singled in runs earlier in the inning, while Rene Rivera started the comeback with an RBI double off Bobby Jenks. The Boston reliever was charged with five hits and six runs -- two earned -- in one inning. Jenks also threw a wild pitch during an inning that continued thanks to an error from first baseman Aaron Bates.

Daisuke Matsuzaka allowed five hits and a run in six innings for Boston, while Minnesota starter Brian Duensing surrendered seven hits and six runs -- three earned -- in 4 2/3 frames.

Adrian Gonzalez homered for the Red Sox.
