MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Jim Thome hit a tiebreaking RBI double during Minnesota's three-run eighth inning and the Twins beat the Boston Red Sox 5-2 on Wednesday night.
Thome also had a run-scoring single and the Twins got an outstanding effort from Nick Blackburn to snap a six-game losing streak and avoid a sweep.
