MINNEAPOLIS -- David Ortiz homered twice for the second straight game and the Boston Red Sox beat the Minnesota Twins 9-4 on Wednesday night. Martellus Bennett Jersey . Big Papi went 3 for 5 with two RBIs, one night after a four-hit performance against his former team. Both of his homeruns -- off Kevin Correia (1-5) in the third and Caleb Theilbar in the fifth -- travelled more than 400 feet into the right-field upper deck at Target Field, where hes batting .528 (28 of 53) in 13 career games. It was more than enough for Felix Doubront (2-3), who allowed a run on seven hits in 6 1-3 innings and retired nine straight at one point. Doubront hadnt won since April 3 at Baltimore, his first start of the season. Ortiz, who also doubled in the first inning, moved into sole possession of third place on Bostons all-time homers list (384) and recorded his 43rd career multi-homer game, 41 of which have come with the Red Sox. Even the Minnesota fans -- many of whom likely remember some of the 58 homers he hit with the Twins from 1997-2002 -- appreciated Ortizs display of power, politely standing and clapping as he rounded the bases after his second homer put Boston up 6-1 in the fifth. Trevor Plouffe hit his second homer of the year for Minnesota, a two-run shot in the ninth. Joe Mauers sacrifice fly in the third scored Eduardo Escobar. Minnesota added an unearned run in the eighth after a throwing error by Burke Badenhop from the mound allowed Chris Parmelee to reach third, He eventually scored on Eduardo Nunezs RBI single. Grady Sizemore had two hits and a pair of RBIs; Dustin Pedroia, Mike Napoli and Will Middlebrooks each drove in a run for Boston. A.J. Pierzynski added a two-run double in the ninth. Notes: Ortizs 442 homers moved him into a tie with Dave Kingman for 39th place on baseballs all-time home run list. . The Twins reinstated OF Oswaldo Arcia from the 15-day DL and optioned him to Triple-A Rochester. Arcia missed 33 games with a right wrist strain before playing a 12-game rehab assignment in Rochester. ... Friday will be a big day for injured Twins players in Rochester.

Quarterback Drew Willy appeared to injure his throwing hand on the third last play of practice Thursday.ORLANDO, Fla. -- Road victories dont come easily for the Atlanta Hawks. Not even against one of the NBAs worst teams. Atlanta lost a 19-point lead in the fourth quarter before coming back to hit six free throws in the final 40 seconds and secure a 112-109 victory over the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night. Paul Millsap had 24 points and Jeff Teague added 23 to help the Hawks earn just their seventh road victory of the season. "I wish they could put a leadership column on the stat sheet. Tonight when we got down, Paul was the one that pulled them together," Atlanta coach Mike Budenholzer said. "All the other stuff is great ... but I think its his leadership, and I think our group needs that going forward." Seven players finished in double-figures for Atlanta, which has won two straight and has a day off before hosting San Antonio on Friday. Millsap stayed confident despite losing the big lead, that it wasnt going to be their latest road shortcoming. "We were falling apart a little bit," he said. "They made a nice little run. We didnt want to just call it quits then. So we had to regroup, get back on the right track." Victor Oladipo led Orlando with 24 points. Tobias Harris had 19 points and 12 rebounds, and Jameer Nelson finished with 17 points. For the Magic, the loss was the latest setback for a team that was hoping to build on a win over Boston on Sunday that snapped a 10-game losing streak. Theyve now started another streak with back-to-back losses to Brooklyn on Tuesday and the Hawks. The Magic have lost 12 of their last 13 overall, and fell to 1-14 this season without starting centre Nik Vucevic, who continues to recover from a concussion. "Its tough for us to make shots down the stretch," Harris said. "We had some good opportunities, we just couldnt convert." The Hawks entered the game just 6-13 on the road, an issue that coach Mike Budenholzer said could be solved by showing more attention to detail and mental toughness. They would need those attributes late against the Magic. The Magic fell behind by as many as 11 in the first half, before trimming the Hawks lead down to 60-59 in the opening minutes of the third quarter. Demetri Goodson Jersey. . Atlanta responded by hitting nine of its first 16 shots in the quarter to ignite a 22-4 run that opened up a 19-point lead at 82-63. But Orlando closed the quarter with its own 17-6 spurt and trailed by eight entering the final period. The Magics momentum continued in the fourth, and they took their first lead of the game, 93-92, on a dunk by Kyle OQuinn. They were leading 98-92 when they lost Doron Lamb, who fouled out after scoring seven quick points in the quarter. With Lamb gone, Orlando got a little sloppy offensively and the Hawks closed to 102-100 on Shelvin Macks layup with 3:47 to play. After a pair of lead changes Atlanta went back in front, 110-109, on a pair of free throws by Pero Antic with 22.8 seconds to play. Orlando got Glen Davis free for a short jumper that bounced off the back of the rim. Antic got the rebound, was fouled, and hit two more at the foul line with just 11.1 seconds left. The Hawks never trailed in the first half and took a 60-56 lead into halftime. Both teams shot above 50 per cent in the half, but the Hawks held a 36-24 edge on scoring in the paint. Millsap led all scorers with 14 first-half points. Teague said Millsap continues to carry the Hawks since Al Horford was sidelined for the season with a torn right pectoral muscle. "He does that every night, Do-It-All-Paul," Teague said. "Hes been the ultimate player for us this year, and he did it again tonight. If he doesnt make (the All-Star team) it would be highway robbery, I think." NOTES: Atlantas Kyle Korver extended his NBA record to 110 consecutive games with at least one made 3-pointer. ... Orlando fell to 1-24 when its opponent scores 100 or more points. ... Vucevic missed his ninth straight game due to a concussion. Magic coach Jacque Vaughn said he isnt sure where Vucevic is in the leagues concussion protocol, saying only that "Hes still in the doctors hands."
