In this bizarre year, even the wins are gut-wrenching. The Red Sox entered the ninth inning on Sunday with a 6-1 lead. Two home runs off of Vicente Padilla later, they hung on for a 6-4 win over the Twinkies.

Franklin Morales had another outstanding starting pitching performance and Adrian Gonzalez hit a key 2-run home run to insure that Boston was not swept by the inept Minnesotans.
