The POTD turns back the clock to the rubber match in Minnesota's lone visit to Toronto in 2010.

Lefty Brett Cecil sets the tone with seven innings of one-run ball against the Twins.

Fred Lewis crosses the plate after a leadoff homer against Twins starter Scott Baker.

Adam Lind gets ready to touch third after getting to Baker with a leadoff homer in the second inning to make it 2-0 Toronto.

Aaron Hill followed Lind's blast with a single but he remains stuck at first after Lyle Overbay flies out to left field.

Hill reached second on an Edwin Encarnacion single and scampered to third on a Jose Molina base knock to load the bases.  Twins third baseman Danny Valencia awaits a late throw.

Hill multi-tasks by removing Alex Gonzalez's bat out of harm's way while stretching to step on home plate at the same time.  Twins catcher Drew Butera, son of former Jay Sal Butera, can only look on as Encarnacion and Molina would also score on Gonzalez's two-out, bases-clearing double to make it 5-0 Jays.

Overbay greets Twins reliever Alex Burnett with a solo blast to start off the seventh inning to make it 6-1 Toronto.

Molina is on his way to third after he belts his first home run in a Jays uniform off Burnett in the seventh to increase the lead to 7-1.

Of course, it would not be the "Toronto Blue Jays 2010 Game Day Experience" without a home run from the home run king. Jose Bautista, who is greeted by Vernon Wells, drills his 23rd homer of the year off lefty Ron Mahay to start off the eighth.

The Jays celebrate an 8-1 win over the eventual AL Central Division Champion Minnesota Twins.  From left to right are Lyle Overbay, Edwin Encarnacion, Alex Gonzalez, Vernon Wells, Aaron Hill, Fred Lewis, and Dewayne Wise.  The Jays begin the 2011 regular season against the Twins at the Dome April 1st.
