WEDNESDAY'S RESULT

Twins 7, Pirates 4

Twins starter: RHP Vance Worley — 5 IP, 7 H, 2 ER, 5 SO, 1 WP

Pirates starter: RHP A.J. Burnett — 3 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 2 SO, 1 HB, 1 WP

New role: RHP Jeanmar Gomez, the newly anointed long man in the bullpen, tossed 3 23 innings after replacing Burnett and took the loss. Gomez has started 38 of his 42 games in the majors.

Gotcha: Catcher Russell Martin twice threw out Doug Bernier trying to steal second base.

Can't get ya: Byron Buxton swiped two bags against Martin.

Stock up: Alvarez got hits in his first three at-bats, including a towering solo home run to right field off Worley. His single in the ninth gave him three RBI.

Stock down: Alvarez grounded into a double play in his fourth at-bat. In the eighth inning, his throwing error led to two unearned runs.
