Red Sox outlast Twins, lengthy rain delay
Lackey (2-4) pitched six strong innings, giving up one hit and one unearned run. He struck out five and hit one batter but didn’t issue a walk. The storms prevented him from completing the game, but he took a no-hitter into the fifth inning.
Dustin Pedroia’s two-run, ninth-inning homer expanded Boston’s lead to 5-1. Pedroia, David Ortiz and Daniel Nava each had two hits for the Red Sox.
Twins rookie Pedro Hernandez, who has been up and down in his six starts this season, struggled from the start with the Red Sox lineup. Hernandez (2-1) gave up three runs on ninth hits in 4 1/3 innings.
Plouffe broke up Lackey’s no-hitter with a leadoff double in the fifth. He scored on a throwing error by Boston shortstop Pedro Ciriaco. It looked like a sure double-play ball that could have ended the inning, but instead it ended the shutout.
