The Red Sox cuffed around Minnesota Twins ace Bert Blyleven for six runs on nine hits over 4 2/3 innings, then teed off on the Twins' bullpen for a 12-8 win, increasing their AL East lead to 2½ games.

Jim Rice had a three-run homer and Dwight Evans had a bases-clearing double.

Rogelio Moret took over for Rick Wise in the fourth inning and went the rest of the way, allowing one run on three hits, to get the win.
