Donaldson, Cave homer in 10th to lead Twins past Red Sox 9-6

8-26-21

BOSTON (AP) — Josh Donaldson hit a two-run homer leading off the 10th inning and Jake Cave added a three-run shot to help the Minnesota Twins beat the Red Sox 9-6. Boston rallied from a four-run deficit and sent the game into extra innings on Kyle Schwarber’s two-run homer in the ninth. Donaldson and Jorge Polanco homered for the second straight game. Miguel Sanó hit a 495-foot homer that is the longest in the majors this year and one of the longest in the history of Fenway Park. It was just 7 feet shorter than Ted Williams’ 502-foot shot in 1946 that’s commemorated by a red seat in the Fenway bleachers.  Series wraps up tonight at 6:10 p.m. on 950 KWAT.
