Twins walk off against Red Sox


MINNEAPOLIS — Twins right fielder Chris Parmelee provided the big hit in an 8-6 win over the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday at Target Field.

Parmelee hit his first home run of the year over the right-field wall on an 0-1 pitch from Red Sox pitcher Andrew Miller to win the game in walk-off fashion.

With Boston taking over the game’s momentum, Twins relievers Jared Burton and Glen Perkins cooled off the Red Sox’s hot bats.
