The Twins rallied back from a four-run deficit with a trio of RBI singles in the fourth. But Shannon Stewart's second homer of the season gave Minnesota the lead in the fifth before a three-run seventh extended the gap. Torii Hunter capped things off with a grand slam.
Toronto jumped out to an early lead when Troy Glaus and Lyle Overbay hit first-inning back-to-back homers. Glaus knocked an RBI single in the third, but Josh Towers exited after giving up five runs, four earned, in 4 2/3 innings against the Twins.
