Cody Ross hit two home runs, and Daniel Bard recorded his first win as a reliever, as Boston snapped their five-game skid and defeated the Minnesota Twins, 6-5.

* Against the Twins, Adrian Gonzalez recorded his 10th RBI, while Ross registered his 13th. Also, Alfredo Aceves earned his third save of the season.

* Boston and Minnesota will return to the diamond on Tuesday for an 8:10pm start — Josh Beckett opposes Nick Blackburn.

* The Boston Celtics will play their second to last regular season contests on Tuesday, too, as they welcome the Miami Heat to the TD Garden for an 8PM tip-off. Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett may not play against the Heat, as head coach Doc Rivers indicated during Monday’s practice that both players may one of the remaining contests.

Wes Welker apparently will be making a few appearances on various ESPN shows on Tuesday and will also be hosting a live online chat, too.
