Gibbons asked umpires to review a play in the sixth. Chris Rahl was called safe at first base when Toronto shortstop Munenori Kawasaki’s throw pulled Jared Goedert off the bag.

After a wait of 2 minutes, 34 seconds, the call was upheld. In the eighth inning, replay confirmed another Twins runner was safe at first.

STARTING TIME

Twins: Minnesota won its other split-squad game, with starter Vance Worley tossing three shutout innings in a 9-2 win over Baltimore. Manager Ron Gardenhire went with the team to Sarasota while bench coach Terry Steinbach stayed in Fort Myers.

“No complaints about our pitching,” Steinbach said.

DOUBLE TROUBLE

Twins second baseman Brian Dozier hit doubles in each of his first two at-bats. He had 33 doubles last year.

BUS LEAGUES

The Blue Jays‘ 132-mile ride to Hammond Stadium was the longest of the spring for Toronto, four miles more than the one to JetBlue Park, the Fort Myers home of the Boston Red Sox. The Blue Jays‘ shortest trip is three miles to Clearwater’s Bright House Field, the spring home of the Philadelphia Phillies.

The Twins return the bus trip favor on Saturday when they make the long trek to Dunedin to play the Blue Jays.
