Angels Sweep Twins in Four Game Series
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Mike Trout hit his 32nd homer, C.J. Wilson recovered from a slow start for his 11th win, and the Los Angeles Angels completed a season sweep of Minnesota by beating the Twins 14-4 on Sunday.
Howie Kendrick, who had three hits and four RBIs, and C.J. Cron also homered for Los Angeles. The AL West leaders had a season-high 19 hits and completed their fifth four-game sweep this season, extending a franchise record.
Wilson (11-9) walked three straight batters to start the second. All three came around to score, giving Minnesota a 3-2 lead, but Wilson retired 13 of his next 14 hitters.
Trout hit a two-run homer in the third off rookie Logan Darnell (0-2). Kendrick had a two-run triple in the fifth, and Cron launched a two-run shot off reliever A.J. Achter in six-run sixth to put the game out of reach.
