BOSTON — Stephen Drew doubled in the winning run with two outs in the 11th inning, and the Boston Red Sox rallied past the Minnesota Twins 6-5 on Monday night to stop season-high, three-game losing streak.

Drew also homered for the Red Sox. Dustin Pedroia hit a solo shot in the eighth for a 5-4 lead, but Joel Hanrahan gave up Brian Dozier’s homer in the ninth.

Clayton Mortensen (1-2) earned the win with 2 1-3 innings of scoreless relief.
