Polanco, Garlick power Twins past Red Sox on Patriots’ Day

Jorge Polanco and Kyle Garlick hit early two-run homers over the Green Monster to back Dylan Bundy, carrying the Minnesota Twins past the Red Sox 8-3 in Boston’s annual Patriots’ Day game on Monday.

The game started at 11:11 a.m. EDT, played in conjunction with the 126th Boston Marathon.

Polanco added a two-run single in a four-run eighth inning and Gio Urshela had three singles for the Twins, who won the series finale for a four-game split.

Bundy (2-0) gave up one run and five hits in 5 1/3 innings with six strikeouts and no walks.

Rich Hill (0-1), pitching three days after the death of his father, gave up four runs and six hits in 4 2/3 innings.

CUBS 4, RAYS 2

CHICAGO ( Associated Press) — Rookie Seiya Suzuki extended his hitting streak to nine games, tying Akinori Iwamura for the longest by a Japanese-born player at the start of a major league career, and Chicago beat Tampa Bay.

Suzuki matched the mark that Iwamura set with the Rays in 2007. He is batting .429 after going 2-for-3 on a cold night.

Ian Happ’s RBI single in the eighth against Jeffrey Springs broke a 2-2 tie and drove in Suzuki, who was hit by a pitch from Jason Adam (0-1) leading off the inning.

Keegan Thompson (2-0) got Randy Arozarena to ground into an inning-ending double play in the fifth and struck out five in 3 2/3 innings while allowing one hit.

David Robertson pitched around a walk in the ninth for his fourth save.

BREWERS 6, PIRATES 1

MILWAUKEE ( Associated Press) — Christian Yelich belted a grand slam for his first homer of the season and Milwaukee beat Pittsburgh.

Yelich’s two-out slam capped a five-run rally off Pirates starter Zach Thompson (0-1) in the fourth inning. The 429-foot blast was Yelich’s fourth career grand slam.

Eric Lauer (1-0) gave up one run and five hits in six insides while striking out five and walking one. Pittsburgh got its only run in the fourth on rookie Diego Castillo’s first career homer, which came one pitch after Castillo swung at a slider from Lauer that hit him in the knee.
