Owners John Henry and Tom Werner returned from the Olympics in London Saturday night, but they did not witness any gold-medal performances from the team they own.

As dramatically as Pedro Ciriaco had stroked an eighth-inning pinch-hit homer to give the Red Sox a 3-2 lead that became 4-2 on a Cody Ross RBI single, Alfredo Aceves gave it all away and then some when he served up a three-run homer to Joe Mauer in the ninth as the Twins went on to a 6-4 win before a stunned crowd of 37,914 at Fenway.
