Donaldson, Cave homer in 10th to lead Twins past Boston 9-6
BOSTON (AP) – Josh Donaldson hit a two-run homer to lead off the 10th and Jake Cave added a three-run shot to help the Minnesota Twins beat the Red Sox 9-6.
Boston rallied from a four-run deficit and sent the game into extra innings on Kyle Schwarber’s two-run homer in the ninth.
Donaldson and Jorge Polanco homered for the second straight game.
Miguel Sanó hit a 495-foot homer that is the longest in the majors this year and one of the longest in the history of Fenway Park.
It was just 7 feet shorter than Ted Williams’ 502-foot shot in 1946 that’s commemorated by a red seat in the Fenway bleachers.
