Twins 12W: Radke (7-10)
L: Arroyo (9-7)Red Sox 0
Brad Radke's seven strong innings and a number of bad throws by Boston helped snap the visiting Red Sox' eight-game winning streak.
Radke finally got some run support from his struggling offense and picked up his first victory since the all-star break.
Joe Mauer had three hits and three RBI and Lew Ford had three hits and three runs for the Twins, who won for just the fourth time in their last 15 games.
