Boston, MA (Sports Network) - Trevor Plouffe, Justin Morneau and Pedro Florimon each had three RBI, while Ryan Doumit and Aaron Hicks added a pair of RBI apiece as the Minnesota Twins outslugged the Boston Red Sox, 15-8, in the third installment of a four-game set at Fenway Park.

Plouffe had three hits and also scored two runs and Florimon homered and doubled. Ryan Doumit added four hits, including a two-run homer, and scored three runs and Joe Mauer had a pair of doubles and scored three times for the Twins, winners in three of their last four.

Ryan Pressly (1-0) earned his first career win after tossing four scoreless innings of relief. Starter Pedro Hernandez gave up six runs on seven hits over just two innings of work.

Jonny Gomes went 1-for-4 with a grand slam and five RBI and Shane Victorino added a pair of hits, including a solo homer, for the Red Sox, who have dropped five of their last six games.

Allen Webster (0-1) started in place of left-hander Felix Doubront, who was moved to Boston's depleted bullpen. Webster was hammered for eight runs on six hits in just 1 2/3 innings.

David Ortiz's 27-game hitting streak came to an end after he went 0-for-5.
