Twins at the plate: Jason Kubel got Minnesota's first hit, then the Twins didn't get their second until the sixth inning, when Carlos Gomez drilled a two-run home run over the left-field wall and onto one of the back fields at Fort Lauderdale Stadium. Catcher Wilson Ramos reached base on an error and on a walk.
The Twins will have a road game of their own, heading to Port Charlotte, Fla., for a 1:05 p.m. game and starting Kevin Slowey against the Rays' Scott Kazmir.
