FORT MYERS, Fla. Eddie Lack Jersey . -- Kevin Correia threw three hitless innings and a split squad of Minnesota Twins beat the Toronto Blue Jays 12-2 Monday. Correia, who was 9-13 last year, permitted just one walk. "Trying to get command of all my pitches," he said. Blue Jays starter J.A. Happ struggled, walking four and giving up a double and single while getting only one out. Six Toronto pitchers combined for eight walks. "Couldnt throw strikes," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. "We were allergic to the strike zone today on the mound." He indicated Happ was not excessively wild. "It wasnt like he was scattered all over," Gibbons said. "He was close. So, you got to keep it on the zone. Let them hit the ball. Thats the approach you got to have. looking for contact." Happ said hes ready to put this outing behind him. "Just anxious to get out there and do it again," he said. "I felt like I was making good pitches," he said. "The ones they took were just off and I wasnt as sharp with my fastball command as I need to be." Jermaine Mitchell homered for the Twins. He went 3 for 3 with a double and drove in four runs. Brian Dozier hit two doubles. Edwin Encarnacion hit a two-run homer for Toronto. He hit 36 homers last season. "We dont worry about Edwin," Gibbons said. The game featured the first review under Major League Baseballs expanded replay system. Gibbons asked umpires to review a play in the sixth. Chris Rahl was called safe at first base when Toronto shortstop Munenori Kawasakis 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 Clearwaters Bright House Field, the spring home of the Philadelphia Phillies. The Twins return the bus trip favour on Saturday when they make the long trek to Dunedin to play the Blue Jays. Nathan Gerbe Jersey . Its been two seasons in one for both parties and neither will look back on the first 18 games fondly. "I think I took the fall for a lot of things," said Gay, reflecting on his short time in Toronto ahead of Wednesdays game against his former club. Teuvo Teravainen Jersey .S.-Cuba relations means baseball prospects get off the island and into the major leagues without payoffs to smugglers and threats from kidnappers, its hard to see the downside. http://www.hockeyhurricanes.com/ . GQ Lundqvist quite well.Three rounds, and nearly two months later, will the Kings have the strength to reach the summit of the Empire State to claim the cup?Truer words have never been spoken.TORONTO -- Rudy Gay launched a long lob to a soaring DeMar DeRozan, who finished with huge one-handed dunk early in the third quarter Wednesday. The Toronto Raptors dropped a 101-89 pre-season decision to the Minnesota Timberwolves, but the highlight-reel connection between the two athletic Raptors was perhaps a promise of more to come for the two whove now had the benefit of some time playing together. "Its going good, I know where his sweet spots are, and vice versa," said DeRozan, who topped Toronto (1-1) with 17 points. "Were just trying to put it together, especially when we need to get a bucket, and be aggressive, and get other teams in the penalty. Thats one thing were trying to do." Gay finished with 11 points. "Were trying to get in the rhythm of the offence, being aggressive, trying to create for others, trying to get that down pat," DeRozan said. New Raptor Tyler Hansbrough had nine points and seven rebounds, while Jonas Valanciunas had nine points and five boards and Kyle Lowry had eight points to go with four assists. Kevin Love led the Timberwolves with 20 points and nine rebounds, while Nikola Pekovic had 12 points and eight boards and J.J. Barea added 12 points. Its a new season under a new general manager in Masai Ujiri, but there is stability in the Raptors starting five that didnt exist at this time last year. All five are returnees compared to a year ago when three of the starting five were newcomers. Added to that, Gay was acquired during the mid-season trade that sent Jose Calderon to Detroit, and had to learn on the job without the benefit of training camp or pre-season. Together, DeRozan and Gay can open up space for each other, and pose a huge threat to opponents defences, who have to decide whos the more important player to focus on. Apart from the alley-oop, Wednesdays game at the Air Canada Centre was typical pre-season, not a pretty performance for either team, featuring mis-timed alley--oops and sloppy turnovers. Jake Bean Jersey. "Its pre-season," coach Dwane Casey said. "I dont think you can talk to a coach in the NBA now that is where they want to be. We are definitely not where we want to be defensively." Valanciunas said it was a "bad effort on defence tonight." "We still have time and a lot of things to fix and were going to start tomorrow," he said. The Raptors sophomore centre, who was beaten up by the leagues top centres early in his rookie campaign, had some trouble with Minnesotas centre Pekovic on Wednesday. "Hes a really good player, and its not easy to go up against him," Valanciunas said. "Its easier than last year, but I still have to fix a lot of things." The Raptors, who won their pre-season opener 97-89 over the Celtics in Boston on Monday, trailed the Timberwolves 29-22 after a sloppy first quarter. New Raptor Steve Novak drained three three-pointers in the second to help Toronto take a 59-55 lead into the dressing room at halftime. Ronny Turiaf led the TWolves with seven points in a third quarter that saw the visitors regain the lead, up 83-75 with a quarter left. Casey went with mostly newcomers down the stretch as he continues to get a feel for what they have to offer. Toronto next hosts former Raptors No. 1 draft pick Andrea Bargnani and the New York Knicks on Friday. They open the regular season at home against the Celtics on Oct. 30. Notably absent on the night was The Raptor, the teams much-beloved mascot, whos out for the season after rupturing his Achilles tendon. Casey said he called The Raptor after hearing of his injury, which required surgery. "I was disappointed, my daughter cried, she was upset," Casey said. "(The Raptor) is a good man, but hell bounce back, hes in good hands with the physicians. The Raptor will be back." The Raptors will hire a replacement for the man under the costume, whos been with the team since Day 1.
