Rosario homers twice, Twins rally in ninth, beat Angels 5-4

The Twins have hit 16 home runs in their last 10 games.

The Twins couldn't make that happen Thursday night at Angel Stadium, and the result was a 7-4 loss to the Los Angeles Angels and the end of their five-game winning streak. Just yikes. Skaggs has allowed just four runs in his last 17.2 innings and all three of those games came against loaded offensive clubs, so his awful numbers at home are easy to overlook based on his current form. Kinsler followed with a two-run homer, hitting a breaking ball that Berrios left over the middle of the plate.

The Minnesota Twins finally got the comeback win they had been close to staging so many times this season.

He finally came through in the bottom of the ninth after Trout was unintentionally walked. The Twins have gone 16-18 SU this year and are 19-14 ATS.

Last season, he made two starts against the Angels, going 2-0 with a 2.92 ERA. Kinsler jumped on the first one for a two-run homer in the second, his 21st career homer against the Twins. Justin Anderson (0-1) gave up three runs in 1 1/3 innings.

Shohei Ohtani added a majestic solo homer into the rock pile off Trevor Hildenberger in the seventh.
