Monday's result

Twins 5, Pirates 4

Hammond Stadium, Fort Myers, Fla.

Twins starter: Vance Worley 2 IP, 2 H, 1 SO

Pirates starter: Kyle McPherson 2 IP, 1 H

Boom: Jose Tabata got his first hit, a solo homer to left that tied the game at 4 in the seventh inning. Tabata did not play in the Grapefruit League opener, and he has come off the bench in the past two games.

The decider: Left-hander Kris Johnson gave up the tiebreaking run in the eighth. Chris Colabello's two-out double scored Brandon Boggs from first base.

Stock up: Jordy Mercer batted in the 2 spot and had two hits, both of which moved a baserunner from first to third and led to runs.

Stock down: RHP Jeanmar Gomez was torched for four runs in 11⁄3 innings. He gave up three hits (two of them doubles) and walked two.
