BOSTON — Samuel Deduno allowed two hits in six innings in his third straight strong performance and the Minnesota Twins spoiled a rare solid outing by Jon Lester and beat the Boston Red Sox 5-0 on Thursday night.
Brian Dozier had three hits for Minnesota, including a two-run homer in the ninth.
Deduno, making his sixth major league start, has given up just two earned runs and 10 hits in 19 1-3 innings.
Lester had allowed 25 earned runs over his previous four starts and gave up only three runs and seven hits in eight innings on Thursday but was backed by just two hits against Deduno (3-0) and two relievers.
Adrian Gonzalez got both those hits — a single and double — off Deduno, a minor-leaguer from 2005 until being called up by Colorado in 2010.
