JUPITER, FLA. (AP) - Twins right-hander Kevin Slowey was dominant on the mound Tuesday, and he looked pretty good as a batter, too.

Slowey pitched five effective innings and helped his cause with two hits and three RBIs, leading the Minnesota Twins to an 8-1 victory over the Florida Marlins.

Slowey, who allowed a run and two hits while striking out five, had a bases-loaded single in the first inning off right-hander Chris Volstad and then ripped a double to left in the third to score two more runs.

Volstad had his roughest outing of the spring, allowing four runs _ three earned _ in four innings.
