Eduardo Nunez followed with an RBI single to make it 4-3 and give the Twins the win.

Twins reliever Jared Burton (1-1) got the win and closer Glen Perkins got four outs for his 10th save.

Twins manager Ron Gardenhire was ejected for the first time this season, after arguing a call in the fourth inning, according to It was the 68th time Gardenhire has been thrown out of a game in his career.

Minnesota begins a three-game series against the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday at Target Field.
