FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — Angel Pagan led an All-Star lineup for Puerto Rico’s national team by going 2 for 3 with an RBI in an 8-7 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday in a tuneup for the World Baseball Classic.

Pagan, who led the National League with 15 triples last season for the San Francisco Giants, had a double and also scored a run. Fellow outfielder Carlos Beltran of the St. Louis Cardinals had one of Puerto Rico’s 17 hits.

Twins starter Vance Worley gave up six hits and three runs in 3 1-3 innings.

Aaron Hicks, the front-runner to be Minnesota’s center fielder, led off the first with a home run and went 2 for 2 with two runs scored.

Puerto Rico’s first game in the WBC is against Spain on Friday.
