Fourteen hits, but only five runs for the Red Sox. That wasn’t enough to beat the lowly Minnesota Twins, and another possible win slipped through the Sox’ grasp.
The Twins, on the other hand, had no problem at all putting together a run when it mattered, scoring in the top of the 10th inning on a single by No. 9 hitter Jamie Carroll, capping off a 4-for-4 performance at the plate. That’s why NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is giving Carroll our “Off-Key” player of the game. Who’s yours?
