Twins Fall In Walk Off In Anaheim

Twins Fall In Walk Off In Anaheim

But Eddie Rosario led off with an infield single and then scored on Garvers double. "His splitter was as good as we've seen it, and he got some big outs with his fastball". Middleton only returned from the disabled list last Thursday after sitting out with elbow inflammation.

Angels reliever Keynan Middleton threw just 12 pitches in the eighth inning, heading to the dugout with a 1-1 count on Rosario.

The Angels got one back in the bottom of the third when Cozart scored on a chopper to third by Justin Upton to make it 3-1.

"They can really swing it and put up runs in a hurry, so walks definitely not part of the formula, but thankfully we were able to strand them and allow them to only put three on the board", said Twins starter Kyle Gibson, who gave up two runs, three hits and four walks in six innings.

Forget about Mike Trout, Mookie Betts, Bryce Harper and Max Scherzer, the best baseball player in the world is Los Angeles rookie Shohei Ohtani.

Romero's career-opening scoreless streak ended at 15 2/3 innings when Upton beat out a potential double-play grounder in the fifth, but he struck out six while walking three. Kole Calhoun walked and reached second on a wild pitch.

At the plate, Ohtani has batted.348 with five home runs and 16 runs-batted =-in so far this season in the first slugger-pitcher combination effort since legend Babe Ruth's heyday a century ago.

Trout didn't start for the first time this season, but the two-time AL MVP struck out looking as a pinch-hitter with two runners on in the seventh inning.

Mike Trout, 26, a center fielder with the Los Angeles Angels and a 2009 Millville High School graduate, was the 2014 and 2016 American League Most Valuable Player. That was the only one of Ohtani's five major league starts where he has not made it into the sixth inning.
