BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) — Danny Valencia hit a three-run homer among his two hits Saturday as the Minnesota Twins broke out of a hitting funk and beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-2.

Valencia doubled in the fifth inning and homered in the sixth. It was Twins’ first extra-base hit in six games.

The Twins did all their scoring off reliever Jo-Jo Reyes, who allowed four hits and a walk in two innings.

Twins starter Terry Doyle allowed two runs on seven hits and one walk in 2 2-3 innings. Doyle was a Rule 5 pick in December and must be offered back to the Chicago White Sox if he doesn’t make the Twins’ roster.

Erik Bedard tossed three scoreless innings and gave up one hit for Pittsburgh. Casey McGehee went 3 for 3 with one RBI and Nate McLouth went 2 for 2.
