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.

Jared Burton (0-1) retired his first two batters in the 11th, then gave up a swinging bunt single to Jarrod Saltalamacchia when the pitcher’s throw pulled first baseman Justin Morneau off the bag. Will Middlebrooks singled, and Drew hit a line drive to the base of the Green Monster in left-center.
