FORT MYERS (AP) — Ricky Nolasco pitched five solid innings against his former team in the

Minnesota Twins’ 4-2 victory over the Miami Marlins on Sunday.

Nolasco, likely to start on opening day for the Twins, threw 74 pitches, 48 for strikes, and exited with a 3.27 spring ERA after allowing two runs on seven hits and no walks. The right-hander struck out three.

Eduardo Escobar broke a 2-all tie with a two-out, two-run single in the seventh inning Minnesota.

Oswaldo Arcia added a wind-blown triple and a sacrifice fly for the Twins, who evened their spring record at 7-7-3.
