Justin Masterson needed only 17 pitches to record 6 outs to start off the game.
Smooth sailing, as well, for Sox prospects Craig Hansen, Michael Bowden, and part-time rocket scientist Craig Breslow.
On the hitting side, Dusty Brown reached base 3 times in 3 plate appearances, with 2 walks and a single. Chris Carter started and played the entirety of the 7-inning contest in left field. He hit a double, walked, knocked in 2 and scored 3 times.
Tomorrow? First Grapefruit League game for the Sox @ the Twins with Daisuke on the mound. Hideki Okajima, Mike Timlin, and Batshit McCracken are also expected to see work.
