Red Sox win on back-to-back homers in 10th inning

David Ortiz hates the Twins, and Mike Napoli is strong

After getting one lousy hit against the Minnesota Twins in the first nine innings, the Red Sox found themselves down by a run in the 10th. This brought up David Ortiz, who entered the game with a career .342 average against the Twins, with 19 home runs, a .431 on-base percentage, and a .676 slugging percentage against them in 225 at-bats.

Then he stepped up against Casey Fien and punished his old team again, pulling a pitch that was closer to the outside corner than the inside corner.

Vengeful Ortiz is the most terrifying of Ortizes. So full of Old Testament wrath. Minutes later, Fien threw the worst 0-2 pitch of the year to Mike Napoli.

"He'll never look for it down the middle!"

That's how you go from one-hit shutout to one-run loss in three minutes. The Twins were having a good day, right up until the moment they weren't.
