The quick-strike Pittsburgh Pirates scored twice in the bottom of the first inning, but the Twins rallied for four runs late in the game to beat the Bucs 7-3 on Wednesday.
The Twins battled through snow flurries in Wednesday’s game in Pittsburgh and might face similar weather conditions in Thursday’s home opener. The latest forecast has snow arriving about game time, or 3 p.m.
Starter Jake Odorizzi wasn’t particularly effective — three earned runs in four-plus innings — but the offense kicked it into gear with six extra-base hits: five doubles and another home run from the red-hot Brian Dozier, who has four dingers in almost as many games. Also on fire: Eduardo Escobar, who doubled twice Wednesday and is now hitting .438.
