BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) — James McDonald allowed 10 runs, seven hits and seven walks in just 3 2-3 innings as the Pittsburgh Pirates lost to the Minnesota Twins 11-6 Thursday.

Brian Dozier and Brian Dinkelman hit two-run homers for the Twins, who had 15 hits. Dozier went 3-for-5 with three RBIs, and Dinkelman was 3-for-3 with four RBIs.

Twins left-hander Matt Maloney, starting for the first time in spring training after seven relief appearances, gave up one run and four hits in three innings. He might move to the rotation if Scott Baker (sore right elbow) or Jason Marquis (away from camp following his daughter’s bicycle accident) is not ready for the start of the season.
