[u:36coj8of]Red Sox pull away from Minnesota[/u:36coj8of]MINNEAPOLIS — In a game in which the Boston Red Sox scored 15 runs and pounded out as many hits, it was a base-running play by the red-hot Xander Bogaerts that helped make the difference.Bogaerts did it all for the Red Sox on Saturday, procuring his second consecutive four-hit game in leading Boston to a 15-4 win over the Minnesota Twins at Target Field.With the game tied, 4-4, Bogaerts led off the sixth inning with a single. With David Ortiz at the plate and the Twins’ defense shifted accordingly, the slugger hit a sharp grounder at Twins second baseman Brian Dozier, who fumbled it initially.Dozier flipped to second for the force, but Bogaerts beat it standing up and continued on his way to third, which was left unmanned.“Just an electrifying type of play,” Red Sox manager John Farrell said. “It turned the dugout on, because you don’t see it often. Just a great heads-up baserunning move.” ... s-red-sox/
