BOSTON  (AP)  Scott Diamond allowed three hits in seven innings, Ryan Doumit hit his first homer of the season and the Minnesota Twins beat the Boston Red Sox 6-1 on Tuesday night.

Diamond (3-2) gave up a single in each of the first three innings, didn't allow a runner past first base and retired the last 15 batters he faced. He struck out two and walked none.

David Ortiz went 1 for 4 to extend his hitting streak to 27 games, a run that began before he sustained a season-ending injury in August. He has at least one hit in all 15 games he's played this season.

Ryan Dempster (2-3) pitched well for Boston and left trailing 2-0 in the top of the eighth.
