Red Sox 6, Twins 4

Red Sox Spring Training

David Ortiz shot a long single off the right field wall to plate a pair and make it 6-0 after 4. Then Jason Kubel, Jason Bartlett, Luis Castillo and Jeff Cirillo came up with two-out RBIs to make it 6-4 here against a previously-untouchable Josh Beckett.

Before the Twins bats woke up, Beckett had allowed two hits and struck out 7 over his first 4 2/3 innings. He just froze Joe Mauer to end the nightmare top of the 5th, though, presumably his last pitch of the night.

Manny Ramirez is done, by the way, probably to get online to check how the auction's going....
