Minneapolis, MN (Sports Network) - Dustin Pedroia clubbed a two-run homer and finished with three RBI, while John Lackey spun six stellar innings of one-hit ball to help the Boston Red Sox complete a three-game sweep of the Minnesota Twins with a 5-1 win Sunday at Target Field.

Lackey (2-4) struck out five without walking a batter and allowed just one unearned run to halt a three-start skid in his 300th career start.

Pedroia also scored twice and singled in the fifth to extend his hitting streak to 11 games, while Will Middlebrooks scorched a solo shot in the second for the Red Sox, who have won five straight games.

Pedro Hernandez (2-1) was touched for three runs on nine hits over 4 1/3 frames to absorb the loss.

Trevor Plouffe registered two of Minnesota's five hits and scored the lone run in the Twins' fifth straight setback.
