The Twins regular season starts in Chicago when they take on the White Sox on March 31.

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.

Gibson and Diamond are competing for the Twins' fifth rotation spot.
