Two steps forward and one step back? That old adage perfectly describes Red Sox right-hander Joe Kelly's past three starts.
A five-run eighth lifted the Storm Chasers to a win in their first home games against Tacoma since 2012.
The Tigers had trouble getting any baserunners against Athletics right-hander Jesse Hahn, who threw his first career shutout and complete game in a 4-0 victory, sending the Tigers to their third straight loss and sixth of nine overall.
Shortly after defeating the Red Sox on Monday, starter Ricky Nolasco was in the Twins' clubhouse dancing for his teammates. And while Nolasco's dancing skills admittedly might not be up to par, the righty had plenty of success on the mound, giving up just two runs in 7 2/3 innings and securing his 100th career victory in Minnesota's 7-2 win.
