DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) - Justin Morneau had two hits, including a run-scoring double, and the Minnesota Twins beat the Toronto Blue Jays 8-4 on Tuesday.

Morneau and teammate Joe Mauer, both taking part in next month's World Baseball Classic, made the 2 1-2 hour trip from Fort Myers.

Mauer singled and walked twice. He scored on Morneau's third-inning RBI double.

Morneau, who will be playing for Canada in the WBC, received a nice cheer when named during the announcement of pregame lineups. The first baseman hit a three-run double in Minnesota's 5-4 victory over Pittsburgh on Monday.

Both starting pitchers, Toronto's Ricky Romero and the Twins' Mike Pelfrey lasted just 1 2-3 innings in their spring training debuts.
