Minnesota Twins turn first triple play in 11 years vs Angels

Twins hit trio of 2-run homers to beat Angels 11-5 Watch: Twins turn rare triple play on ground ball
Isaac Mcdaniel | 04 June, 2017, 07:14

For one night, though, Minnesota bucked the trend.

Sano, who had missed the previous two games because of an illness, hit a long homer to center off former Twins prospect Alex Meyer in the second to give the Twins a 1-0 lead.

Joe Mauer, Robbie Grossman and Max Kepler all hit 2-run home-runs early in the game to put the Twins up 6-0. "He was on everything". Sano also started this around-the-horn triple play to bring the top of the 4th to a sudden stop.

It happened in the fourth inning last night in Los Angeles while most of us were getting our beauty sleep.

"We hung in there and got a little bit of a break on the pop-up", Molitor said. "He's just gotten away from some of those things".

"Just using the two-seamer, four-seamer when he needs a strike. But yeah, he got into a really good groove from the first to the fifth". He had pitched into the seventh inning in four consecutive starts before Friday, when he gave up seven runs and eight hits.

"That's huge for a starting pitcher", Gibson said.

The Twins overcame two solo home runs from the Angels' Kole Calhoun, while keeping Albert Pujols stuck at career home-run No.599.

Port St. Joe alum Pryor traded to Browns
The linebacker had some productive years with Gang Green before the Browns signed him away from the Jets in free agency last year. However, it seemed like a trade was unlikely, the Jets evidently weren't getting their asking price from any potential buyers.

Danny Espinosa hit a two-run homer for the Angels in the ninth. Said Gibson: "He's been on a tear the last month and a half". Calhoun entered the game hitting.207.

"I worked hard since this last start, just about being more in the zone", Gibson said. That's been my trouble this year. A triple play. Even better: An around-the-horn triple play. "I was trying to fill up the zone and get 'em to a point where they being aggressive".

The Twins went on to beat the Angels 4-2. He has raised his average from.230 to.294 since May 4, hitting safely in 16 of his past 18 outings.

Bud Norris walked in a final run. The Angels signed OF Michael Bourn and assigned him to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Angels: Placed OF Cameron Maybin on the 10-day disabled list was a left oblique bruise.

That was the Twins' first triple play since May 27, 2006.
