Trout's go-ahead HR helps Angels beat Twins 8-6

Posted:

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Mike Trout hit a tiebreaking two-run homer after Los Angeles and Minnesota exchanged five-run innings, and the Angels beat the Twins 8-6 on Tuesday night for their fourth straight victory.

C.J. Wilson barely navigated through five innings and left with the lead after allowing six runs and nine hits, including back-to-back home runs for the second time in his last three starts. The left-hander, who came in 5-0 with a 1.58 ERA in his previous six outings at Angel Stadium, blew a 5-0 lead in the second before Trout hit his 17th homer in the bottom half.

Trout's homer was Los Angeles' last hit until David Freese's one-out single in the sixth. The Twins got a run closer in the fifth on a sacrifice fly by former Angels slugger Kendrys Morales, but Joe Smith got three outs for his sixth save to help end Minnesota's season-best four-game winning streak.
