Red Sox starter Drew Pomeranz was forced to leave the game early due to triceps tightness. He lasted two innings and allowed three earned runs. The left-hander said he didn’t think the trouble was anything serious.
Hanley Ramirez hit his third homer for Boston and Mitch Moreland went 3 for 3. Ben Paulsen had a solo homer and three hits for Minnesota, while Joe Mauer walked twice and scored.
