The Twins lost 11-2 at home to the Boston Red Sox Tuesday night.  Nick Blackburn returned to the starting rotation and was beaten badly.  He allowed 8 hits and 5 earned runs in 3 innings to take the loss and drop to 0-2.  Former Twin David Ortiz hit a long 2-run homerun off Blackburn in the 3rd inning and finished with 3 RBIs.  Josh Beckett threw 6 innings with 2 earned runs allowed to get the win for Boston.  Josh Willingham and 2 hits and 1 RBI and Denard Span was 2-4 for the Twins.

Minnesota has lost 4 straight games and is 5-13 on the season.  The Twins try and salvage the final game of the 3-game series tonight at 7:10, pregame on WJON at 6:40.  Righthander Liam Hendriks (0-0) gets the start on the mound for the Twins and righthander Clay Buchholz (1-1) toes the rubber for the Red Sox.

The Twins will play the next 2 games without Josh Willingham.  He will be away from the team on paternity leave.  His wife, Ginger is scheduled to give birth to their 3rd child today.  Ben Revere has been called up from triple-A Rochester to take Willingham’s spot on the active roster.  Willingham is expected back on Saturday.
