Rubby De La Rosa teamed up with three relievers on a three-hit shutout as the Boston Red Sox edged the Minnesota Twins, 1-0, to open a three-game series at Fenway Park.

De La Rosa (2-2) surrendered only a Danny Santana single in the third inning and three walks over seven outstanding frames. Burke Badenhop then worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the eighth before Koji Uehara retired the side in order in the ninth to nail down his 31st consecutive regular-season save opportunity.

A.J. Pierzynski drove in the game's only run with a fifth-inning sacrifice fly that plated Daniel Nava, the only blemish on Minnesota starter Kevin Correia's six innings of work.

Correia (3-8) yielded just five hits and a walk in the hard-luck loss, the Twins' third in a row on their current road trip.
