SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) -- Matt Wieters hit a two-run homer, Lew Ford drove in three runs and Steve Johnson pitched four scoreless innings to help a Baltimore Orioles split squad beat the Minnesota Twins 7-1 on Sunday.

Ford, a non-roster outfielder, is batting .483 this spring. Wieters is hitting .500. J.J. Hardy, who was 1 for 21 entering the game, also had a home run.

Johnson, one of several pitchers competing for the No. 5 spot in Baltimore's rotation, allowed three hits and walked one. He struck out two.

Twins starter Vance Worley, who could get the ball on opening day, gave up three runs and six hits. He walked one and struck out three.

Brandon Boggs homered with two outs in the ninth for Minnesota's only run.
