The Red Sox beat the Twins 9-5 Sunday afternoon at Fenway Park in Boston.  Carl Pavano allowed 10 hits and 7 earned runs in 5 innings to take the loss and drop to 2-4.  His ERA swells to 6.64.  Jason Kubel went 3-4 with a run scored and 2 RBIs and Danny Valencia went 2-4 with a homerun and 2 RBIs for the Twins.  Adrian Gonzalez went 3-5 with a homerun and 2 RBIs for the Red Sox.  Minnesota is 12-20 and 9 1/2 games back of Cleveland for first place in the AL Central.  Twins shortstop Trevor Plouffe left the game late with a tight hamstring.  His status going forward is questionable.  The Twins close the 4-game series at Boston tonight at 6:10, pregame on WJON at 5:40.  Righthander Nick Blackburn (2-4) gets the start on the mound for the Twins and righthander Josh Beckett (2-1) toes the rubber for the Red Sox.  Blackburn starts in place of Francisco Liriano.  Liriano misses the start due to flu-like symptoms.
