Boston takes frustration with Twins into Saturday night game

The Twins are playing spoiler for the Boston Red Sox. After taking two of three from AL East-leading New York last weekend and doing the same against Detroit, Boston (53-54) has lost its first two against Minnesota, which has the second-worst record in the AL. Boston hopes to turn that around with Clay Buchholz pitching. Minnesota has won six of the last eight, and sends Cole De Vries, winless in his last five starts, to the mound.
