Red Sox's Andrew Benintendi bunts for a single against the Twins during the sixth inning Tuesday

The Twins, who cut it to 3-2 in the third on an RBI single by Luis Arraez, bounced back to take a 4-3 lead in the fourth.

"It was good, especially after last night's game, we could have come in and kind of been dragging today", Brock Holt said. "It was a wild game". "That's why when I went to third I couldn't go as aggressive as I wanted to".

The winning hit came off Brian Johnson (1-1), who pitched the 17th inning for the Red Sox. Cora said Devers would likely be out of the lineup Friday, but called his third baseman day to day. "It wasn't the result, so it's tough to swallow".

Boston's Rafael Devers left in fifth inning with tightness in his right hamstring. Devers caught the ball from catcher Christian Vazquez.

Rodriguez settled in and retired 11 of the final 12 batters he faced after Kepler's homer. He said he was OK at first and then when he got to third I'm like, 'Nah. "I think for me, it's something I've tried to do a long time".

Boston had a six-game winning streak snapped.

The Red Sox walked away with a 9-4 win over the Twins on Wednesday night and handed Minnesota just its second home series loss this season, and first since April.

Maple Leafs Trade Patrick Marleau to Hurricanes for 2020 Draft Pick
He signed a three-year, $18.75-million contract with the Leafs in the summer of 2017 after 19 seasons with the San Jose Sharks. The Leafs don't retain any salary in the deal, so Marleau's $6.25-million USA cap hit for 2019-20 is off the books.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora doesn't expect Devers to play Friday at Fenway Park vs. the Blue Jays. "They scored one more run than us". Mookie Betts put Boston up 3-2 before Kepler launched his 18th homer to keep the game going.

Poppen was able to get into the game tonight and gave the Twins bullpen a much-needed night off, throwing four innings to finish the game. "I've been on the losing side of those before".

Baldelli said after the game that Poppen would be optioned back to Rochester.

Minnesota placed Marwin Gonzalez on the injured list with a right hamstring strain. The Twins recalled outfielder Jake Cave from Triple-A Rochester to take Buxton's spot on the roster.

Rodriguez (8-4) allowed four runs and eight hits, but more important, he lasted seven innings after the Red Sox used eight relievers in Tuesday's marathon. Odorizzi has won 10 straight decisions and beat the Royals in his last start.

Twins: RHP Kyle Gibson (7-3) is looking to build off his best start of the season. Minnesota's veteran righty threw eight shutout innings and allowed just two hits in a win against Kansas City his last time out.
