With Torii Hunter watching from the other side, Carlos Gomez made a strong first impression in Minnesota.

Gomez formally replaced Hunter as the center fielder and raced around the bases, giving Livan Hernandez and the Twins enough offense to beat the Los Angeles Angels 3-2 Monday night with a snowstorm swirling outside the Metrodome.

Former Gator Darren O'Day pitched the eighth inning, giving up two hits and no runs.

O'Day loaded the bases with one out, but was able to retire the next two batters.
