MLB: Boston 3, Minnesota 2 (10 inn.)

MINNEAPOLIS, May 18 (UPI) -- Jonny Gomes lifted a sacrifice fly in the 10th inning that delivered Dustin Pedroia and gave Boston a 3-2 decision over Minnesota.

The Red Sox won their third straight while the Twins have lost three in a row.

Pedroia singled to open the 10th against Josh Roenicke (1-1) and went to second when David Ortiz drew a walk. A sacrifice by Will Middlebrooks moved the runners up and Stephen Drew was walked intentionally to load the bases.

Gomes came through with a fly ball to center.

That run gave Alex Wilson (1-0) his first major league victory after he recorded the final out of the ninth. Koji Uehara turned in a perfect bottom of the 10th for his first save.

A two-run homer by Pedro Florimon gave Minnesota a one-run lead in the third, but Boston tied it in the seventh on an RBI single from Jacoby Ellsbury.
