MINNEAPOLIS - Aaron Hill went 4-for-5 with one of Toronto's four home runs in four innings against Minnesota starter Scott Baker, and the Blue Jays kept up their torrid hitting in a 12-2 victory over the Twins on Wednesday.
Hill and Scott Rolen hit two-run shots against Baker, who came off the disabled list to make a forgettable first start of the season. Vernon Wells and Michael Barrett also went deep, sending Baker to an early exit.
The night was far more memorable for Blue Jays starter Scott Richmond (1-0). The native of North Vancouver, B.C., got one out in the seventh before being removed and yielded just four hits, two runs (only one earned, due to a wild pitch) and three walks.
