Early-Afternoon Games

Twins 14, Blue Jays 5 Box »

Aaron Hicks wrapped up the Twins' center-field job by going 4-for-4 with a double and three runs scored on Sunday afternoon as Minnesota routed Toronto, 14-5. Manager Ron Gardenhire confirmed to MLB.com that Hicks will be his Opening Day center fielder.

"It feels great," Hicks told MLB.com "It's everything I've been working for since I started playing baseball. So it just feels really good to be named center fielder."

The 23-year-old is batting .350 with 16 RBIs and 16 runs scored in 18 Grapefruit League games. Joe Mauer homered and drove in six runs as the Twins scored 13 of their runs in the first four frames.
