FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — Kevin Correia threw three hitless innings and a split squad of Minnesota Twins beat the Toronto Blue Jays 12-2 Monday.

Correia, who was 9-13 last year, permitted just one walk.

Blue Jays starter J.A. Happ struggled, walking four and giving up a double and single while getting only one out.

Jermaine Mitchell homered for the Twins. He went 3 for 3 with a double and drove in four runs. Brian Dozier hit two doubles.

Edwin Encarnacion hit a two-run homer for Toronto.

The game featured the first review under Major League Baseball's expanded replay system.

Toronto manager John Gibbons asked umpires to review a play in the sixth. Chris Rahl was called safe at first base when Toronto shortstop Munenori Kawasaki's throw pulled Jared Goedert off the bag.

After 2 minutes, 34 seconds, the call was upheld. In the eighth inning, replay confirmed another Twins runner was safe at first.
