MINNEAPOLIS, May 18 (UPI) -- David Ortiz belted a pair of homers and drove in six runs Saturday, powering the Boston Red Sox over Minnesota 12-5.

Ortiz put Boston ahead to stay with a three-run shot in the first inning, added an RBI single in the third and connected for a two-run blast in the seventh as the Red Sox notched a fourth straight win.

Daniel Nava went 2-for-4 with a two-run clout and a sacrifice fly and Ryan Lavarnway also knocked in a pair for the Bosox, who pounded out 14 hits in the victory.

Craig Breslow (1-0) earned the decision with 1 2/3 innings of scoreless relief.

Twins starter Scott Diamond (3-4) was tagged for six runs on eight hits in a 4 1/3-inning effort.

Pedro Florimon drove in two runs while Jamey Carroll and Justin Morneau each added two hits and an RBI for Minnesota.
