MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Max Kepler delivered the sigh-of-relief winner for Minnesota on the last day of a rough first homestand of the season.

The Boston Red Sox relentlessly kept the Twins from being comfortable all series.

Kepler's bloop RBI single in the bottom of the ninth inning gave Minnesota a 4-3 victory Thursday over Boston - stopping a five-game losing streak for the Twins and breaking a nine-game winning string for the Red Sox.
