Twins Shut Out Jays

Fernando Romero kept Toronto scoreless while pitching into the sixth inning of his major league debut for Minnesota, giving the Twins a badly needed boost in a 4-0 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays.

Eddie Rosario homered for the Twins, who won for only the second time in their last 13 games.

Marcus Stroman had his best performance in six turns for the Blue Jays this season, giving up six hits, two runs and one walk in seven innings — he struck out five.

After four of nine games were wiped out by wintry conditions during their first homestand this year, the Twins finally enjoyed some ideal spring weather upon their return to Target Field.
