Hughes (7-2) rebounded from his first loss in nine starts last time out to allow just seven hits over seven scoreless innings for the Twins, who began a nine-game, three-city road trip by winning two of three from the Blue Jays. The right-hander struck out nine without walking a batter, improving to 7-1 over his last 10 starts.

Morales broke the game open with a three-run double in the seventh for Minnesota, which won for just the third time in seven outings. Josh Willingham added a two-run homer and drove in three runs for the Twins.

Jose Bautista had two hits, drove in a run and scored a run for the Blue Jays, who have dropped four of five after winning 15 of 17.
