Sox Beat Twins to Win Mayor’s Cup

The Red Sox won the fifth and decisive game against the Minnesota Twins this Spring, taking the annual Mayor’s Cup 12-7. The catchers led the way in the win. Sox captain Jason Varitek started and went 2-2 with a HR, 2 RBI and a walk. Backup Kevin Cash subbed in for Tek and hit a 3-run HR in the 7th inning to break open the game.

Rookie Clay Buchholz started and went 3 2/3 innings, allowing two runs on three hits while allowing one walk. Mike Timlin also pitched, giving up a solo shot to Joe Mauer.

Lefty Francisco Liriano started for the Twins, going 2+ innings and allowing 3 runs on 4 hits. Of his 53 pitches, only 28 were strikes. He is still recovering from left elbow surgery (his pitching arm), which knocked him out for the entire 2007 season.

Sox slugger Manny Ramirez went 2-2 with a walk and an RBI double, while DH David Ortiz went 2-3 with an RBI.
