Red Sox sweep Twins with 5-1 win

Posted:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- John Lackey allowed one hit over six innings before a three-hour rain delay, Dustin Pedroia and Will Middlebrooks homered and the Boston Red Sox beat the Minnesota Twins 5-1 Sunday for their fifth straight win.

The delay lasted long enough for the Twins to show the 1993 movie "The Sandlot" in its entirety on Target Field's videoboard. The game resumed about 80 minutes after the film ended and many fans moved into the first eight rows behind the dugouts.

Lackey (2-4) gave up one unearned run and struck out five before dark skies and heavy rain sent fans running for cover as he was warming up to start the seventh.
