Sox Drop Series Finale 7-4 [VIDEO]
The Boston Red Sox came back to tie the contest on Sunday afternoon with the Minnesota Twins, but it was a walk-off home run by Max Kepler in the 10th inning that was the difference maker.
Boston was stymied by Twins' starter Pat Dean who went 6.1 innings pitched with three hits allowed and four walks. The Red Sox came back with three runs of their own in the eighth inning and tied the game up, thanks in part to some Minnesota defensive errors.
The Twins were able to salvage the final contest on some clutch extra inning hitting when Max Kepler launched a three-run homer off of reliever Matt Barnes to give Minnesota the 7-4 victory.
With the loss, Boston will remain in a tie for first place in the American league East with the Baltimore Orioles who also lost on Sunday. The Sox will have Monday off before playing a series with the Orioles starting on Tuesday afternoon.
