Twins Come Back To Beat Angels Thursday
The Minnesota Twins beat the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 4-2 Thursday night in Southern California. The win snaps the Twins' four game losing streak.
The Twins took a 1-0 lead in the second inning on a Miguel Sano's 13th home run of the season off of former Twin Alex Meyer. Minnesota scored three more runs in the top of the ninth inning to earn the win, capped by a Jason Castro two-run single.
A little bit of Twins history was made in the bottom of the fourth inning when the team pulled off a rare 5-4-3 triple play. Miguel Sano fielded Jefry Marte's ground ball, stepped on the third base bag to retire Albert Pujols, then fired to second baseman Brian Dozier to get Yunel Escobar before Dozier's relay to first to complete the play.
The Twins will play at Los Angeles again on Friday night at 9:07. The game can be heard on AM 1240 WJON.
