FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) - Daisuke Matsuzaka turned in his strongest outing of the spring. Red Sox reliever Bobby Jenks had a little more trouble.

Matsuzaka was solid for six innings before Jenks gave up six runs in the ninth, letting the Minnesota Twins rally past Boston 9-8 Saturday night.

Matsuzaka allowed one run and five hits in six innings. He struck out four and walked one.

``His stuff was sharp. His fastball had some real good finish on it,' Red Sox manager Terry Francona said. ``He kept making pitches he wanted to.'

Adrian Gonzalez hit his first home run of the spring as Boston took an 8-1 lead. Jenks came in for the ninth with an 8-3 edge and Minnesota combined five hits and a walk to score six times, with four of the runs unearned.

The Red Sox committed three errors in the game, including one in the ninth.

Francona said Jenks' pitches were ``a little flatter today than we've seen all spring.'

``His stuff's been pretty consistent all spring and he's been pitching in different situations. I just think tonight was a bad night,' Francona said.

Twins starter Brian Duensing allowed six runs, three of them unearned, and seven hits in 4 2-3 innings.

``Dunce was up,' Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. ``He really didn't have his best stuff.'

Justin Morneau doubled twice for the Twins. Darnell McDonald hit a bases-loaded triple for Boston.
