Twins to take on Angels


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- After postponing their Sunday game against the New York Mets because of wintry weather, the Minnesota Twins are hoping the frigid spring weather holds as they start a three-game series with the Angels. 

Rain and snow kept the Twins from concluding their three-game series with the New York Mets on Sunday after they dropped the first two contests, dealing with frigid temperatures.

The weather also pushed Kevin Correia's scheduled start back a day. His only appearance against Los Angeles came in relief on June 12, 2006, when got the only batter he faced to fly out to center.

The right-hander (0-1, 3.14) has been backed by one run in each of his first two starts. He had a 1-0 lead going into the eighth inning Monday at Kansas City, but got just one more out and was charged with all three Royals runs in a 3-1 loss.

That defeat started this five-game skid, during which Minnesota has been outscored 33-12 while batting .200. The club hasn't dropped six straight since April 21-27.

Joe Mauer has a .345 average with six runs during a seven-game hitting streak after getting three hits -- two doubles -- over the last two games.
