Torii Hunter extended his hitting streak to 21 games in the sixth. (Jim Mone/AP)
Jason Tyner's two-run double and Torii Hunter's RBI single in the seventh inning brought the Twins within a run of the Red Sox, but they fell just short in the series finale. Sidney Ponson's career record against the Red Sox fell to 3-11 after giving up four runs (three earned) on eight hits in 5 1/3 innings.
