When the Red Sox close their three-game series at Minnesota tonight, they’ll also be closing the book on the Twins this season.
Tonight’s contest is the last time Boston sees the Twins until 2012. On some level, that’s too bad:?The Sox entered last night’s game 4-1 against Minnesota this season.
Jon?Lester will be on the mound tonight for Boston; he hasn’t posted a truly poor start since May 30 against the White Sox. But he has a 4.67 career ERA against the Twins.
Right-hander Nick Blackburn?(7-9, 4.58 ERA this year) will be on the mound for Minnesota. He’s 2-1 all-time against Boston.
