FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) - Mike Pelfrey struck out four in three scoreless innings and the Minnesota Twins beat the Baltimore Orioles 4-1 on Tuesday.

Pelfrey allowed just two hits and first baseman Joe Mauer went 2 for 3 with an RBI, raising his spring average to .306.

Bud Norris, in line to be Baltimore's fourth or fifth starter, gave up two earned runs and seven hits in 5 1-3 innings.

Twins manager Ron Gardenhire used three potential starting pitchers against the Orioles a day after a rainout. Kyle Gibson pitched three shutout innings, striking out one and giving up two hits. Scott Diamond gave up one run off two hits while striking out one in three innings.
