MINNEAPOLIS -- For the second night in a row, a Red Sox reliever blew a late-inning one-run lead. And for the second night in a row, his teammates quickly got him another.

After Matt Albers cost starter Erik Bedard his first win with the Red Sox, David Ortiz reached on a bases-loaded swinging bunt as Dustin Pedroia crossed the plate in the top of the seventh inning, sending the Sox to a 4-3 victory over the Minnesota Twins.

The victory was the fourth in a row for the Sox.
