SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) — The Minnesota Twins scored four runs off Japanese left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada and held the Baltimore Orioles hitless until the eighth inning in a 5-0 exhibition victory Tuesday.

Making his first start since being signed in the offseason as a free agent, Wada was pulled after three innings because of a high pitch count. He threw 62 pitches, including 30 in a three-run second.

Wada signed a two-year, $8.15 million contract over the winter. He is competing with Brian Matusz for the fifth spot in the Orioles’ rotation.

Twins right-hander Anthony Swarzak, making his first start after four relief appearances, pitched 3 2-3 innings.

The Orioles were hitless until Robert Andino doubled off Glen Perkins with one out in the eighth. It was Baltimore’s only hit of the game.
