Twins Take The Nightcap 2-0, Gain Split
Trevor May Takes Care of business
BOSTON (AP) — Trevor May allowed two hits over seven innings to lift the Minnesota Twins to a 2-0 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday and a split of their day-night doubleheader.
Another rookie pitcher was dominant in the opener when Eduardo Rodriguez allowed one run and two hits in seven innings of Boston's 6-3 win.
May (4-3) only allowed runners in the third inning. With two outs, Carlos Peguero singled and took third on a double by Dustin Pedroia, his fifth hit of the doubleheader. But Brock Holt grounded out.
May struck out nine and allowed no walks. He has issued one walk in 26 2-3 innings over his last four starts.
Glen Perkins pitched the ninth for his major league-leading 20th save in as many chances.
