Boston's Holt scores twice in 2-1 win over Twins

Posted:

BOSTON (AP) -- Brock Holt scored both Boston runs, Jon Lester weathered a shaky start and pitched six-plus strong innings as the Red Sox held off the Minnesota Twins 2-1 on Tuesday night.

Lester has a winning record for the first time this season. The Red Sox have won two straight and four of six.

After needing 33 pitches to get out of the first inning on a hot, muggy night at Fenway Park, Lester settled down and took a shutout into the sixth. He left with one out in the seventh after striking out six and holding the Twins to one run, four hits and a walk.

Edward Mujica pitched the ninth and earned his second save.

Phil Hughes took the loss for the Twins, who have dropped four straight.
