How it happened: The Sox continued their horrendous play in the field as they yielded three unearned runs. What was a strength last season has turned into one of the primary reasons the Sox have struggled so bad this year. Aaron Hicks hit two home runs for the Twins and robbed Adam Dunn of a two-run homer with a nice catch at the wall.
What it means: It means that whatever message about defense Robin Ventura tried to impart during a meeting with his team on Saturday did not sink in.
Hits: Alejandro De Aza continued his hot hitting with three hits.
